UPC vs. national and supra-national courts – strategy review

IP Experts LIVE: Webinar for IP Professionals

IP Experts LIVE is a webinar series by BARDEHLE PAGENBERG (see our program PDF).

Our experts will provide you with insights on selected aspects of German and European IP law with a focus on practical and strategic guidance. At the end of each seminar, there will be a Q & A session.

What is it about?

The Unified Patent Court (UPC) has been a reality since June 1, 2023. It is already shifting the boundaries in global patent litigation. Due to the availability of a pan-European injunction within a rocket-docket time frame, it does not come as a surprise that the first UPC cases – including preliminary injunctions – were already filed. At the same time, national European courts, and foreign venues (e.g., ITC) continue to play a vital role in global patent enforcement campaigns. It is fair to state that complexity is greater than ever. Thus, for both plaintiffs and defendants, it is critical to understand the interplay of UPC and national court proceedings and the strategic options it provides.

When the Unified Patent Court has operated one month, our attorneys Johannes Heselberger and Dr. Tobias Wuttke will review relevant strategic considerations, including the following aspects:

•    Risks and rewards of UPC and national patent litigation
•    Key arguments for parallel litigation
•    Strategizing timelines – simultaneous versus staggered approach

Are you keen to learn how to navigate this dazzling array of offensive and defensive litigation avenues? Do you need to decide how to strategically enforce or defend a patent case before the UPC? Register for this webinar now to find answers.
