Cobalt Riga has created Patents, Trademarks, and Designs and Data Protection, IT, and Media subgroups within its IP&IT Practice Group, "to address ever-growing demand for legal services in the fields of intellectual property, data protection, information technology, pharmaceuticals, and life sciences."

Cobalt Senior Associate Liga Fjodorova heads the new Patents, Trademarks and Designs subgroup. Cobalt reports that Fjodorova "is a licensed Latvian and European Trade Mark Attorney," and claims that "for more than ten years [she] has been one of the leading intellectual property law experts in Latvia."

The new Data Protection, IT and Media subgroup will be headed by Senior Associate Linda Birina, who is, according to Cobalt, "one of the leading Latvian experts in the field of media law and privacy protection."

Cobalt's IP&IT practice group, which was formerly headed by Ingrida Karina-Berzina, will, going forward, be headed by Partner Indrikis Liepa, who will also continue to lead the Pharmaceuticals, Healthcare and Life Sciences subgroup. Karina-Berzina has left the firm, Cobalt reports, "to focus on full-time Ph.D. studies of law at a top-ranked European university while continuing teaching at the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga and the Riga Graduate School of Law." 

In an official statement, Cobalt announced that it "extends sincere thanks for Ingrida’s significant contribution to the development of the firm and wishes her every success in academical research and educating new generations of IP&IT lawyers."
