Representing client interests in the Federal Antimonopoly Service

The Federal Antimonopoly Service has a number of wide-ranging powers to detain and prosecute offenders of fair competition, as well as has control over the integrity and authenticity of advertising.

Unfortunately, a registered trademark, in particular, cannot always provide complete protection to the owner of the product or idea from being illegally copied. Appealing to the Federal Antimonopoly Service may be the best way to resolve the dispute in such a case. The Federal Antimonopoly Service has a special competence to resolve disputes that arise, for example, in the instance of a similarity of product labels (even if the label is not registered as a trademark), or misleading advertising from a direct competitor.

Our lawyers have accumulated considerable experience in representing clients’ interests in dialogue with the Federal Antimonopoly Service. We have won cases that now are recognized as landmark cases in the practice of combating unfair competition.
