With 130 practitioners in 16 offices strategically located across Eastern Europe, PETOŠEVIĆ provides a seamless trademark service throughout the region, and its Kyiv outpost is a key cog in this slick machine. The 11-strong team includes eight qualified attorneys, who work tirelessly to protect and defend the interests of clients both at home and further afield. Patrons include some of the world’s biggest technology companies, as well as heavyweight brand owners in the food and drink, FMCG and fashion industries. Keeping things humming in Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan is seasoned regional manager Dina Petošević, who set up the practice in Ukraine in 2010. The Kyiv office is now headed up by attorney at law Oleh Karpenko, an internet-savvy enforcement ace: “Oleh is an experienced and hardworking lawyer who is dedicated to what he does and delivers to the client. He is creative in his approach, establishes effective cooperation with law enforcement authorities and secures positive results.” Working alongside Karpenko are Natalia Stetsenko, who focuses on anti-counterfeiting, with a particular speciality in pharmaceuticals; and Yuriy Karlash, who is as comfortable duking it out before the courts and customs authorities as he is handling domain name transfers and complex internet-related issues. Clients treasure his “high-quality, detailed and clear” counsel.
