We have gained good experience in obtaining trademark registrations in the countries of the former USSR, including Belarus, Russia, the Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and also in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
As the Baltic States, such as Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia have recently joined the European Union, we can also submit Community trademark applications at the OHIM through our Lithuanian branch in EPAG Ltd.
