In our first video update, Joseph Lenthall and Joanna Deas, Partners in our Chemistry & Life Sciences team discuss oral proceedings before the EPO, focusing on the development of videoconferencing and whether this will be a long term measure.
We have also provided links to other useful articles and decisions:
- HLK’s comment on EPO oral proceedings by videoconference (ViCo)
- Decision of the President of the EPO (01 April 2020) about Examining Division oral proceedings by ViCo
- Decision of the President of the EPO (14 April 2020) about the pilot project of Opposition Division oral proceedings by ViCo
If you have any questions or would like to discuss this topic with anyone in the HLK team then please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org, or by email as normal to your team contact.
