Ilyashev & Partners has represented State Enterprise Antonov in negotiations with the Kyiv Watch Factory on an agreement to allow the latter a license to use the "Antonov" trademark in the production of Kleynod watches.
The new "Antonov Watches by Kleynod" brand, Ilyashev & Partners reports, is created for professional and amateur pilots "and Antonov flight enthusiasts around the world." The brand was officially introduced on an Antonov AN-225 Mriyaat – which the firm claims is "the largest aircraft in the world by weight, length, and wingspan" – at an event dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Kyiv Aviation Plant.
Ilyashev & Partners describes the grant by a state-owned enterprise of permission to use its trademark to a private company as "a rather rare case in Ukraine."
The lyashev & Partners team was led by Counsel Oleksandr Padalka.
