AEQUO supports brands holistically through the application of refined prosecution, counselling and litigation skills. On the non-contentious side, it manages hundreds of trademarks for Ukrainian and major international companies, including those in the life sciences, agrochemical and fintech sectors, which it knows so well. In litigation, it has set precedents and established itself as a go-to for challenging cases. Notable recent developments for the team include the promotion to partner of Nataliya Dryuk and Tetiana Kudrytska, who co-head the IP practice. Dryuk is a savvy litigator with innovative strategies on her mind and a specialised knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry. Kudrytska has achieved great things in Ukraine on behalf of top technology companies in trademark and domain name disputes. She previously led the judicial reform department of the Office of the President of Ukraine and is as knowledgeable regarding Ukraine’s IP laws as anyone. Their clients include Darnitsa, the largest manufacturer of medicines in Ukraine, which transferred its entire IP portfolio to AEQUO. New to the WTR 1000 for 2023, counsel Mykola Kovinya is integral to the group’s success. A chemistry PhD who knows patent as well as trademark law, he is a proficient IP all-rounder with a ton of experience. He is well known and respected in the market as a former chair of the Ukrainian IP office.
