Trademark registration in Russia.

Foreign applicants are required to file trademark applications in Russian through a Russian patent attorney.

The object of a trademark in Russia may be verbal, figurative, three-dimensional and other elements or a combination thereof.

 

Following documents are necessary for filing a trademark application in Russia:

1.indication of the full name and legal address of Applicant

2.quality image of a mark (except for marks in plain block letters);

3.classes according to ICGS and the list of goods or services in these classes (multiple class trademark application is possible).

4. power of attorney, simply signed by the Applicant. No legalization is required.

 

We recommend to conduct a pre-filing search before filing the application on base of the registered trade marks of the Russian Federation, including the international registration with indication of Russia and on base of pending applications because we have a substantial examination in Russia.

 

Our attorney fee for conducting preliminary search is 220 EURO (word trademark, 1 to 5 classes). Please see the detailed information about costs in a price list bellow.

 

Please be noted that the costs for filing a trademark application in one class are the following:

450 EURO of our fees, plus approx. 285 EURO official fees.

 

The cost charged in respect of the payment of granting fee and issue of the Trademark Certificate is 100 EURO our fee plus approx. 325 EURO official fee.

 

Kindly note that the indicated amounts do not cover prosecution costs linked to possible official actions, refusals or opposition.

 

Time period between filing an application and registration is approximately 12-14 months (2-4 months – formal examination and approx.10 month – substantial examination). After each step of examination we will forward you the corresponding decision from the RU PTO.

A trademark certificate is valid 10 years from the filing date and can be prolonged without limit.

 

Looking forward to our cooperation!
