Work experience

A 10+ years everyday work experience with intellectual property. A part of work is related domain names (funny fact - they are have not recognized by Russian laws and courts as IP). In respect of domain names, the are several examples of such my work:

  • all UDRP cases (.aero, .io, .com) administered by me have been solved in our favor (e.g. Case No. D2015-0363)
  • legal support of brand top-level-domain name ".yandex"
  • drafting and negotiating agreements (e.g. acquisition and sales of domain names, transfer the rights on domain names)
  • domain names claims management (drafting, negotiations, acquiring rights)


My own legal research project on legal issues of domain names and domain disputes in Russia. All the materials can be found here:
