In the late 80's - early 90's the largest western corporations were discovering the post-Soviet space. They needed a reliable partner, specializing in the field of intellectual property in Russia, which would be well aware of the realities of Russia, but at the same time worked in accordance with international standards. Transtechnology was one of the first private Russian companies in the segment of services related to intellectual property. Through our strong partnership with the largest profile American and Japanese companies, which have been established on the stage of Transtechnology’s development, we were approached by a large number of foreign companies engaged in scientific and technical cooperation and who were in need of legal support of their operations in Russia.
With development of Russian business, our customer base was enriched by domestic companies who were interested in providing legal protection for their intellectual property in Russia and entering foreign markets. Cooperation with us has always been mutually beneficial, because we understood the mentality of Russian client and at the same time actively used experience accumulated together with our foreign partners in the legal protection and enforcement of intellectual property abroad.
Transtechnology has established itself as a company that can provide a high level of professional representation on a wide range of intellectual property rights. Our experts have successfully defended the legitimate interests of intellectual property owners in law enforcement, customs and anti-trust authorities, as well as the courts, and that is why cooperation with us was the key to success of any company.
Today, Transtechnology’s customers are major foreign and Russian companies, small and medium-sized enterprises.
Transtechnology works closely with the federal executive authorities of the Russian Federation, including the Ministry of Education and Science, the Ministry of Industry and Trade and the Ministry of Economic Development. Thanks to this, in recent years more than ten major projects aimed at establishing a legal and procedural framework for protection and commercialization of technologies, and development of innovation infrastructure were implemented.
Transtechnology has extensive experience in implementation of major Russian and international projects directly related to intellectual property and technology transfer, which were carried out in the framework of the programs of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, UNIDO, the European Commission, the European Patent Office, Embassy of France, the World Intellectual Property Organization and Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).
Moreover, Transtechnology’s experts wrote 7 books and over 120 articles dealing with issues of intellectual property rights in Russia and abroad. In particular "Legal aspects of technology transfer on a commercial basis" (Moscow, 2000); "US-Russian technological cooperation" (legal aspects, main recommendations, Moscow, 2000, Washington, DC, 2001); “Legal Regulation of Protection and Commercialization of Intellectual Property Created by the Russian Public Research Organizations” (OECD, 2002); The Strategic Use of IPRs by Public Research Organizations in OECD countries” (OECD, 2003); "Joint Russian-Chinese legal advice on technology commercialization" (Moscow, 2003, Beijing, 2004); “Critical Analysis of Topical Issues in Russia's Innovation System (Project Science and Technology Commercialization Russian Federation, Funded by the European Union, 2007); "The legislative framework of intellectual property market in Tatarstan" (World Bank, 2012).
