Valentina Orlova is acclaimed by the 2021 World Trademark Review – 1000 directory
Once more, the World Trademark Review-1000 has hailed Valentina Orlova, Head of the Intellectual Property and Trademarks Practice at Pepeliaev Group, as one of Russia's premier IP lawyers. She has been placed in Band 1 (Gold) in the "Individuals: prosecution and strategy" section for 2021.
The ranking agency notes: “Few can match the astonishing track record of Pepeliaev Group: it has a hit rate of over 95% in civil and commercial litigation and has faced just seven refusals from Rospatent in the past five years, four of which it successfully overturned. It is no wonder that companies of all stripes from all corners of the globe seek it out to register and protect their trademarks in Russia and elsewhere. Licensing work is also high on the agenda and dispatched with aplomb by the commercially attuned group.” The researchers add that the Head of the Intellectual Property and Trademarks Practice Valentina Orlova “has a strong academic background in law and is highly respected for her in-depth knowledge of trademarks”.
