PETOŠEVIĆ is a wholly owned network of firms known for providing intellectual property and related services throughout the region commonly referred to as Eastern Europe. Today this region is a mix of EU jurisdictions, non-EU Balkan countries, and countries of the Russian-speaking region.
We are a full-service IP firm with over 130 people (out of which 50+ lawyers and 30+ IP agents) working in 16 offices – Albania, Belarus, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Russian Federation, Serbia, Slovenia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. The network’s governing entity is in Luxembourg. PETOŠEVIĆ works with an exclusive representative in Brussels.
In total we cover more than 30 jurisdictions as we also work through affiliated offices in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Czech Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kosovo (UNSCR 1244), Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Slovak Republic, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan.
Our attorneys and IP agents are well-respected local IP experts and are supported by a team of experienced and multilingual paralegal and administrative staff. They are praised for consistently providing quick, reliable and easily comprehensible service to our clients.
Over the last 30+ years it has become clear that the quality of IP services in Eastern Europe and the Russian-speaking region is, generally speaking, below the West European level. Most of the local firms grew out of IPR prosecution-only based businesses, focusing on administrative, mainly patent-related procedures and related translations. Understandably, they comparatively lack experience in IPR enforcement and providing complex legal advice to foreign IP right holders. Large western firms, which are built on substantive practice and case law, have, more or less, successfully entered the largest and most lucrative markets in Eastern Europe, leaving a significant gap in the smaller countries and covering the larger regions only partially.
