Case Studies on the New Unified Patent Court

UPC Scenarios: Case Studies on the New Unified Patent Court

This course will be held by two experienced lawyers - one with a UK and one with a Continental law backround- will take you through the UPC proceedings assuming the role of plaintiff lawyer on the one hand and defendant lawyer ont the other.

Topics

  • No. 1: Is there a case? Pre-litigation preparations
  • No. 2: When things are urgent - preliminary injunction proceedings, i.a. protective writs
  • No. 3: Getting started - the written proceedings (Continental vs. UK style)
  • No. 4: A clash of cultures - interim proceedings & the hearing
  • No. 5: When things are (almost) over - appeal, damages etc.

Aims and objectives

The law for the new unitary patent and unified patent court is here. What is still missing is a clear understanding how the proceedings before the UPC will really develop in practice. Much of the uncertainty arises due to a clash of Continental civil law approaches and UK common law cultures. While invalidity defences, equity and automatic disclosure of documents will be second nature to English lawyers and judges of the UPC, their German counterparts will be more used to a bifurcated system, automatic injunctions and limited documentary disclosure.
Two experienced lawyers - one with a UK and one with a Continental law background - will take you through the UPC proceedings assuming the role of plaintiff lawyer on the one hand and defendant lawyer on the other.
Through a number of case studies the proceedings before the UPC will be explained to you and a suggestion will be presented which melts the best of both the Continental and the British patent law worlds.
