Russia began a full-scale invasion of Ukraine with missile and air strikes on several cities, including Kyiv where we have our main office.

As the shelling started the IPR Group team decided to all relocate for some time. Female staff relocated  outside the country and others moved to safer cities within.

During this time, we did not lose hold of our operations, but began to replace some of our IP infrastructure and remove servers to safe and remote locations. Operations continued remotely during this period and our clients were updated on any changes.

The patent and trademark departments continued full operations in the midst of the bombardments, as well the Patent and Trademark Office of Ukraine.
