As head of Technology, Media and Telecommunications sector group and co-head of Dispute Resolution & Risk Management practice in Latvia, I help clients resolve IP disputes: the key to success is constant learning and loyalty to ideals.
Notable clients. During my career, I have advised many prominent clients who have placed their trust in me. These clients include technology manufacturer Robert Bosch (trademark protection), technology manufacturer Makita Corporation (domain name protection), concrete technology company Primekss (litigation on patent violation), pharmacy company Ratiopharm (litigation on patent violation), social network ASKfm (trademark and domain name protection), pharmacy company Rigvir (trademark use); gambling organiser Olympic Casino (trademark protection) and fitness organisation Crossfit (trademark protection).
Licensed patent attorney. As a licensed professional patent attorney specialising in trade marks, I am qualified to represent international clients before the Latvian Patent Authority and the Industrial Property Board of Appeal in trademark-related matters.
Lectures on IP. Lecturing on intellectual property topics is a pleasure, for example as a visiting lecturer on intellectual property rights at Riga Business School, or on copyright matters at Latvia Culture College, as well as at the Sorainen Student Academy.
