A Counsel at Spenser & Kauffmann, Attorneys at Law, is awarded a WIPO certificate

Tatiana Kharebava, Counsel, Head of Intellectual Property,IT and Antitrust at Spenser & Kauffmann, Attorneys at Law, has become a qualified IP Manager.

Tatiana has obtained from the World Intellectual Property Organisation a certificate of successful completion of Advanced Course On Intellectual Property Management she attended in April-June 2016.

As part of this course Tatiana improved her knowledge and expertise on the following IP issues:

– intellectual property management (IP due diligence, IP portfolio structuring, IT-strategy development);

– assessment of intellectual property price components (identification of IP assets; IP commercialisation; evaluation of IP assets and taxation of transactions involving IP assets);

– managing digital transactions (e-commerce, creative work digital and IP-management management, strategic IP-management).

“IP-manager qualification perfectly brings together legal expertise and deep understanding of economic basis of legal relationship. To put it differently, such an expert analyses and evaluates IP- assets taken as a whole considering both legal and commercial aspects, – Tatiana comments. – That’s exactly why the obtained qualification will become a unique tool to solve complicated IP-related problems of the Company’s client, and will allow for further developing and strengthening of the Company’s practice”.

Particularly, an IP-manager masters modern technologies of managing intellectual property assets, ensures sound management of IP-assets to the benefit of a company, manages the processes of creating, strengthening and commercialising intellectual property items, carries out patent researches to evaluate the competitive ability of a product, assesses the commercial prospects of research findings and ideas and their costs, conducts commercial transactions involving high technologies, patents, trade marks, licenses, know-how, software products, intellectual property designations.
