VB Partners has successfully represented the interests of educational start-up SkyEng in a trademark registration proceeding in Ukraine.

VB Partners describes SkyEng, which it reports as being valued at more than USD 130 million, as "a distance English [language] learning company with more than 100,000 students." According to the firm, "one of the [company’s] former managers, acting illegally and in bad faith, registered [SkyEng’s] trademark in his name and, using this registration, tried to block the company’s activity in Ukraine… the courts of first and appellate instances ruled in favor of [SkyEng] and canceled the illegal registration of the competitor’s trademark.”

VB Partners’ team was led by Partner Oleksandr Lukyanenko.
