4 Months into the UPC: Status and Future of European Patent Litigation

Four months after its start, the UPC has gained traction. Numerous cases have been filed, first hearings have taken place, and decisions have been pronounced.

We would like to share with you the latest facts on the UPC and the CMS behind it. Learn about our impression of how the judges have settled into their new roles on international panels, and what to expect going forward in patent infringement and invalidation matters. Will the UPC become a global epicenter of patent litigation? Are US clients well advised to litigate in Europe before the UPC? And how to defend against UPC litigation?

Join us, in presence, to hear about our first-hand experience from the initial cases, and learn what we think the next months and years will look like.

Date & Time: Thursday, 12 October 2023, 4 p.m. – 6 p.m., followed by a networking reception

Location: Hotel el PRADO, 520 Cowper St, Palo Alto, CA 94301 

Credits: 1.5 hours MCLE (expected, approval pending)

This event is aimed at US IP counsel (in-house and outside counsel) who deal with litigation in Europe across a wide range of industries. It is an opportunity to evaluate new methodologies, to learn through the experiences of your peer group, and discuss how the UPC will change the game in European and global patent litigation.

The event is free of charge and all discussions will remain confidential.
