After the collapse of the USSR, it was necessary to establish certain institutions for intellectual property protection in the newly formed states. A Patent Authority of the Republic of Kazakhstan and an Institute of Patent Agents were set up. In 1993, the first group of nine persons having patent qualification and broad experience and knowledge in that field were attested and they were issued certificates proving their right to work in that field. Galina I. Shabalina was among them.
A company of patent agents was founded in February of 2000. Galina I. Shabalina, a patent agent, and Vladimir I. Shabalin, Candidate of Science (Engineering), who was teaching at the Kazakh Polytechnic Institute and was an outside expert at the National Patent Authority at that time, became founders of the company.
The Company was established to protect intellectual property rights of foreign and national applicants and owners of intellectual property.
Before the year of 2000, Galina I. Shabalina has worked in one of the largest companies of patent agents in Kazakhstan where she was one of its incorporators and founders.
In 2005, Vladimir I. Shabalin was granted the status a patent agent in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
