Baker McKenzie has successfully represented EPK Saratov at Rospatent in a dispute involving a patent on an axle-box with dual bearings.

According to Baker McKenzie, on the basis of the arguments and evidence presented, Rospatent recognized the patent as partially invalid. The successful completion of the process in a short period allowed EPK to proceed with production of its own rail transport components.

EPK Saratov JSC is part of the EPK Group — the CIS's manufacturer of bearings for all branches of engineering. Among its clients are Russian Railways OJSC, the Moscow metro, and rail sector companies across the world.

The Baker McKenzie team consisted of Partner Denis Khabarov and Counsel Yuri Pylnev.
