MOSCOW, April 2, 2020 – We are pleased to announce that Veronica Fridman has joined the Moscow office of Gowling WLG.

Veronica is an experienced Russian lawyer specializing in intellectual property law. She graduated from the State University for Humanities in 1992 with a B.A. in History and Archives and in 1999 she obtained her law degree from the Moscow State Law Academy. She qualified as a registered Russian Trademark Attorney in the same year. She subsequently obtained a Ph.D. in jurisprudence and she teaches International IP Law at the Higher School of Economics.

Veronica acquired extensive experience in her role as Head of Intellectual Property for Jones Day in its Moscow office. Prior to that, she also worked for another US law firm with offices in Moscow. Her in-house experience includes time with Nestle.

Veronica’s focus has been on soft IP and regulatory work in the pharmaceutical field.

“Veronica is a terrific addition to our thriving IP practice in Russia” says David Aylen, Managing Partner of Gowling WLG in Russia. “We have a two-pronged platform that is focused both on helping foreign multinationals to navigate their way in Russia and on helping sophisticated Russian companies looking outwardly from Russia into other markets. Veronica fits that niche very nicely” added Aylen.
