Mikhailyuk, Sorokolat and Partners have successfully defended client's interests in the Eurasian Patent Office (EAPO)

Specialists of Mikhailyuk, Sorokolat and Partners have successfully defended the interests of their client, a largest Danish manufacturer of food products, in the course of examination of an objection against the grant of a Eurasian patent by the Eurasian Patent Office (EAPO) according to the procedure of Eurasian patent administrative cancellation.

The objection was filed to EAPO by the Finnish company for the purpose of cancellation of our client�s Eurasian patent on the basis of the patented invention inconsistency to such criteria of patentability as "novelty" and "inventive step" in view of the prior art, including three patent referral sources.

The meeting of EAPO board of experts on the objection examination was held on the 16th of November, 2016. On the part of the patent owner, the meeting was attended by the experts of our company and the patent owner personally.

As a result of the board meeting it was decided to reject the objection and maintain the Eurasian patent in force.
