Hobbies & Personal information

Loves travelling around the world, enjoying the beauty of nature and listening to its sounds. A fan of yoga and fencing (not only the art of attack and defense useful for sharpening litigation strategy skills, but also the ideal COVID-19 sport with masks, gloves, and if anybody gets closer than 1.5 m to you, you may hit them).

Having worked for 12 years within the top-tier Ukrainian law firms and as in-house legal advisor of a major internationally active distributor of IT products and solutions headquartered in Cyprus, I acquired in-depth experience in international intellectual property, contract and dispute resolution law with a specific expertise on the IP landscape in the Eurasian region.

I am a Ukrainian attorney-at-law and registered trademark attorney with a particular focus on trademark law, including trademark protection and enforcement strategic advice, prosecution, mitigating contractual risks in cross-border IP transactions, brand enforcement and litigation, domain name disputes, IP due diligence.

I have acted for world-known companies in a number of complicated IP matters across the FMCG, Life Science and Healthcare, Agrochemicals, IT and TMT industries and always focus on the business and legal interests of my clients.

At Katzarov I am heading the pole of historical expertise in Eastern European countries, Eurasian region, the Balkans, Mongolia and North Korea from trademark registration to IP rights enforcement and litigation.”
