27 April 2022 - Patent Power Half Hour: UPC primer

Join us for a punchy 30-minute session covering the very latest on the UP and UPC.

After years of uncertainty, the Unified Patent Court and Unitary Patent (UPC/UP) have been confirmed. The UPC is the biggest change to the European IP system in decades and there are actions that can be taken now to prepare for the system. In our session, we’ll cover:

  • Should applicants at the EPO file a request for unitary patent protection?

  • Should you opt-out your portfolio of national validations of granted European patents and/or SPCs from the UPC? 

  • How will the existing systems be affected?

  • What actions should you be taking now to ensure you’re prepared for the changes?

After the presentation, our attorneys will be available for Q&A. If you want to make sure we’ll get to your question(s), feel free to email us ahead of the webinar with your specific query. We’ll then either make sure we’ll cover it during the session or one of our attorneys will contact you directly.
