Recommended - Individuals: prosecution and strategy

KÄOSAAR has cemented its presence on the Estonian trademark scene ever since its foundation as one of the country’s first IP boutiques. The ensemble understands the business value behind intangible assets and over the course of three decades has developed a full-bore offering that seeks to build and maintain strong brands, as well as effectively enforcing them. On the prosecution front, Kalev Käosaar and Aivo Arula take centre stage. The executive manager of the Tallinn office, Käosaar trained at patent agencies in Denmark and the United States and is thus a preferred choice for international instructions; while the hawk-eyed Arula has personally conducted over 7,000 trademark searches in his 20-plus years of practice. “Responsive and efficient”, Indrek Eelmets is the go-to for complex litigation; he also runs a thriving alternative dispute resolution practice and sits as a panellist on the ‘.ee’ Domain Disputes Committee.
