INTELLECT-S Improves Its Ranking in Chambers
The 2016 edition of Chambers Europe names INTELLECT-S the leader of the regional legal services market in Russia.
Chambers Europe 2016 which appeared in April, ranked INTELLECT-S again among the strongest legal services providers in its Russia Regions subchapter. The new edition of the authoritative international practice guide also recommends INTELLECT-S as one of Russia's best teams in intellectual property, patent filing and trademark registration (Intellectual Property: Patent Filing – Russia) – for the first time outside the regional subchapter this year, and as the only Russian firm with the head office elsewhere than in Moscow or St. Petersburg.
Primarily an intellectual property firm, it is well placed to assist domestic clients on their patent registration and prosecution needs, especially in technical patents and inventions. Also able to assist international companies with non-Moscow based patent and intellectual property infringement disputes.
Managing partner of the Yekaterinburg office Evgeny Shestakov is "very respected in the legal market" across most regions in Russia. Considered by commentators to be "a very strong lawyer," he acts for international and large national clients in high-value disputes.
INTELLECT-S made it to Chambers Europe's Russia Regions immediately after the practice guide introduced this subchapter in 2014. Chambers Europe ranked the firm in its prestigious Band 1 in General Business Law in 2014, 2015 and 2016 as the best in the field, according to the UK practice analysts.
The Legal 500 EMEA 2016 also ranks INTELLECT-S internationally as one of Russia's best TMT firms.
