Introduction

 

Käosaar & Co practises in the whole field of intellectual property, but in particular we have specialised in the issues of industrial property: trademarks, patents, utility models, industrial designs, geographical indications, unfair competition.

As far as the protection of trademarks is concerned, we were the first Estonian patent agency to represent its clients interests in the Supreme Court of Estonia. In the field of design protection and unfair competition, we consider our fight against counterfeit goods of ?Nokia?, in cooperation with the Estonian Tax and Customs Board, to be our greatest success.

Käosaar & Co is a member of several international organisations: INTA, AIPPI, FICPI, EPI. We have close professional contacts with patent agencies and international corporations all over the world.

The company has offices in Tallinn and Tartu, which helps us to be always there where our clients need us. The offices are equipped with modern communication systems and computer network that enable us to handle large databases and offer our clients full range of services in the field of intellectual property.

Today we have 14 employees with higher education, 5 of them are European Trademark and Design Attorneys and 1 is European Patent Attorney. By specialities we have 2 lawyers (one of them lawyer-engineer), 1 chemist, 5 engineers, and representatives of various other professions.

In addition, we use specialists from Tartu University as freelance translators. We also have successful co-operation with several excellent law offices to enable the best protection of our clients interests outside the field of intellectual property.
