Intangible assets are becoming an increasingly important factor affecting capitalisation of companies and their competitive success. For sustainable development under current conditions, along with efficiently structuring its production process and distribution network, engaging qualified personnel and implementing innovation, a company needs to structure and manage its intellectual property portfolio. In coping with this task, priority is given to remedies that help protect intellectual property. With a view to assisting our clients, we offer a truly comprehensive range of IP services.

One of the key distinguishing features of Goltsblat BLP is that it has an international IP team working in Moscow, London and other offices. The Global team of IP practice consists globally of more than 30 lawyers based in London and in Moscow.

GBLP specialises in supporting comprehensive and large-scale consulting projects and providing continued support to major companies operating in Russia.
