Assignment and Transfer of IP Rights in Russia

Under Russian law, the rights holder may assign the majority of their IP rights by signing a relevant agreement (e.g., assignment agreement). Multiple rights holders (joint ownership) manage their intellectual property strictly collectively, unless otherwise stipulated in a prior agreement between them.

Russian law also recognizes and regulates transfer of rights that occurs in the form of legal succession (e.g., universal succession). In the latter case, it is important to provide clear and unambiguous documents showing the succession.

Sojuzpatent’s lawyers prepare and file the necessary documents for official registration of assignment, as well as non-contractual transfers, inter alia through legal succession.
