Trademark search

The main reasons for conducting a trademark search are the following:

  • to ensure that the designation you intend to use is available for registration as a trademark; and
  • to avoid involuntary infringement of a third party’s trademarks.

Conducting a search at an early stage may save you a lot of effort and resources in the future. 

It is important to note that in our geographic region many applicants register their trademarks in or with Cyrillic characters. Therefore, the searches require specific algorithms as well as the searchers’ specific qualification and experience. That is why the searches should be conducted by professionals practicing within this particular region.

Trademark searches in Russia

In Russia, we may offer different types of word or device trademark searches.

A search may be conducted through the Russian Patent and Trademark Office (Rospatent) database. A Rospatent specialist provides us with a list of the most relevant trademarks of the records revealed in the course of the search.   

Alternatively, a search may be performed by our specialist within an online database formed on the basis of information published by the Trademark and Patent Office of the Russian Federation.

It is also possible to reveal all trademarks filed and/or registered in the name of a specific applicant. This type of search may be helpful for due diligence, in case of trademark conflicts, and for other purposes.

Upon thorough review and analysis of the revealed trademarks, we will provide you with our comments and recommendations regarding potential use and registration of the proposed mark. We may vary the search terms, their volume, and the format of our opinion depending on our clients’ needs.
