IP, IT and Data Protection

Protect your intellectual property at once, do not leave a chance to third persons to steal or use it!

I am Mariia Koval and I lead IP, IT and Data protection practices at PwC Legal in Ukraine. My team and I are here to help you effectively protect your Intellectual property so your business can become more competitive and grow on international markets.

What we’ve learned from our clients is that the failure to properly protect Intellectual property usually leads to outsized losses as the great brands are more than just the trademarks, and that ideas, expressed in some way, are some of the key and extremely expensive assets for every business. 

We provide a comprehensive and holistic range of services to support you in the management and protection of your Intellectual property. Depending on our clients’ preferences we provide a smart approach to all our offerings: product-based or industry-based. 

Let us show how!
