Patent Bar "Kudakov & Partners"
In 1991 Andrey Kudakov, a physicist and an inventor, PhD in Mathematical Sciences, together with his collegues established a company dealing with protection of intellectual property in Russia – LLP NPOV of Physical Faculty of MSU. At that time one of the key goals of the organization was the assistance to scientists-inventors, as only few researchers (even now) knew how to use such helpful tools like patents for inventions and utility models which proved to be reliable methods of protection of obtained scientific results. That is why the educational work of the Patent Bar "Kudakov & Partners" conducted among scientists is very relevant in modern conditions.
For many years Andrey Kudakov reads lectures about protection of intellectual property for students and graduates of the Physical Faculty of Moscow State University. With active participation of Andrey Kudakov there was established the Patent Department of Physical Faculty of Moscow State University which he now heads. In 2007 was published an impressive and useful book of Andrey Kudakov - "Valuable thoughts. Innovations and intellectual property for physicists and other non-lawyers”.
