Our lawyers pay special attention to the protection of intellectual property rights at the customs border.
Patent trolling remains one of the main challenges for companies that export their products to Ukraine. Import of counterfeits and parallel import are also significant issues for IP rights holders. Therefore, customs protection of intellectual property is one of the main priorities for Mamunya IP.
We ensure the rights of the exporters and intellectual property owners through the administrative customs procedures. Our services include, inter alia, preparing applications for recordal of intellectual property objects with the Customs IP Registry, represening the clients during the customs control and customs clearance of goods containing IP objects, as well as during identification and destruction of the counterfeited goods.
Court representation is a separate aspect of IPR protection at the customs border. In our work, we clearly understand the importance of obtaining preliminary injunctions to promptly suppress the import or export of counterfeited goods. In addition, we understand the intricacies of all stages of litigation in the field of customs disputes, which allows our clients to be always confident in the reliable protection of their intellectual property rights at the customs border.
Our expertise in this area includes the following:
· Customs recordals and renewals
· Customs IP disputes
