Despite some personnel losses in the last few years, AEQUO remains a powerful presence on Ukraine’s trademark scene. While best known for its filing and prosecution prowess, it also flexes strength on the contentious front – handling a number of precedent-setting cases before the Supreme Court – and provides invaluable support on IP-rich transactions. Its legal know-how is complemented by keen insight in the sectors in which clients operate, including everything from life sciences and healthcare to telecommunications and media. Blockbuster chemical company DuPont has lately sought out the firm for both portfolio management and anti-counterfeiting services. Handling both is Tetiana Kudrytska, who co-heads the IP practice and enters the WTR 1000 for the first time this year; her legal know-how also extends to media and commercial law. She returned to private practice in 2019 after a stint heading up the judicial reform department at the Presidential Administration of Ukraine and gives guidance that is “prompt, clear and pragmatic”. Leading the IP department alongside her is Nataliya Dryuk, a litigator and licensing maven who has been in the game since 2007. “Natalia is a diligent, thoughtful and experienced lawyer, showing high standards of client care.”
