Partner Ilya Kalnish Wins the Prestigious Customer Choice Awards 2019
Excellence and quality of customer service are at the heart of our corporate values. These being highlighted both locally and internationally by our customers allows our partner Ilya Kalnish to win, for a third consecutive year, the prestigious Customer Choice Awards 2019.
Ilya Kalnish distinguishes himself for his professionalism and excellence in customer service. "I am honored by this distinction, especially as it is based on a nomination process that originates from the feedback of clients. This confirms the importance of a long-term client relationship and also pays tribute to the trust that unites us", explains Ilya, who has been working for many years on the international influence of BCF, mainly in Russia, but also in Europe, the United States and Canada.
Ilya credits his clients for this achievement: “For many years, I practiced in-house as part of an award-winning Intellectual Property team. The experience taught me the paramount importance of delivering quality patent work and high standard that clients place on their legal advisors these days. Having a privilege to render services to my clients as part of my private practice has only reinforced that message.”
Putting our clients’ needs first, delivering world-class Intellectual Property solutions to our clients, as well as maintaining open and ongoing communication with our clients – this is what I believe is truly valued by our clients and is recognized by this Award.
Ilya supports both large international corporations and smaller start ups / scale ups in developing complex intellectual property strategies. A patent agent in Canada, and a trademark agent in Canada and in the United States, he specializes in artificial intelligence, information technology (IT), and mechanical inventions.
