Join our team of UPC experts on Wednesday 11 September from 13:30 -14:30 GMT | 14:30-15:30 BST | 15:30-16:30 CEST as they share their insights on the Unified Patent Court and practical tips they’ve gleaned through their own first hand experience of the Court.

They’ll discuss recurring themes they’ve identified from delving into decided cases and examining the approaches taken by the UPC and lessons learned from these cases and their own experiences.

UPC representatives Matthew Howell and Greg Ward, together with Jamie Rowlands, IP litigation specialist, will give you pointers on:

  • The need for efficiency in the UPC. What are the pitfalls and when might it work in your favour?
  • Added subject matter – what does the UPC’s approach mean for you?
  • How is the UPC assessing inventive step?
  • Do the Local Divisions share a common approach or could there be conflicting decisions?
  • UPC litigation preparation – top tips
  • Perspectives on recent decisions – what do they mean for future cases?

The webinar will be hosted by another member of our UPC team, solicitor Sanjeet Plaha.
