The «Goryachko, Niadzvetski and Partners» (GN&P) patent agency started its activity in Belarus in 1993 under the name «Belnevinpat», with Papula-Nevinpat as one of the founding partners holding a majority of the shares.

From the very beginning, we have been cooperating closely with Papula-Nevinpat, a globally known network of companies, headquartered in Helsinki, Finland. Today, Papula-Nevinpat continues to be our trusted partner in IPR protection, as we are serving Papula-Nevinpat’s clients in all Belarusian IPR matters through Papula-Nevinpat’s head office as part of its Eurasian network.

Over the years, we have gained invaluable international experience, working with clients from different countries in the field of intellectual property protection. Since 2015 our company has been working under the new name «Goryachko, Niadzvetski and Partners».

The change of name was mostly linked with the high reputation of the founding partners in the field of intellectual property protection, both domestically and internationally. The names of these professionals recognized among patent attorneys, clients and partners serve as a guarantee of the quality of services provided and personal responsibility for the highest results to be achieved.

Patent attorneys and company specialists have higher technical and/or legal education, as well as special education in the field of intellectual property, speak foreign languages, take part in training courses in Finland and in other countries within the framework of international educational programs. This is what helps people within the company to use high standards of the foreign patent companies in their work and keep on this level working with both domestic and foreign clients.

Nowadays, the company, apart from lawyers, has experts in the fields of chemistry, mechanics and electronics, and having them allows successfully solving various issues in the field of inventions.

Currently, the agency occupies a leading position in the field of intellectual property protection in Belarus. Vast experience allows us to provide services of the highest quality.
