Unified Patent Court (UPC): discuss where we are now and how to prepare for the changes ahead

It is now expected that the Unified Patent Court (UPC) will start working as soon as 2015. However many practical questions remain unanswered. Our eminent speakers will discuss the latest guidance on the court’s procedures, including transitional arrangements and costs, to prepare you for the changes ahead. A panel session of industry insiders will debate how to approach the UPC as part of your global patent enforcement strategy.

Highly topical issues covered include the recent judgement in Actavis UK Ltd & Ors v Eli Lilly & Company, which is seen by many as a practical precedent to the UPC. It paves the way for parties to bring proceedings in relation to multiple designations of European patents in a single court.
