Overview

The Unified Patent Court (UPC) will enable parties to enforce or revoke European patents, and the new European patent with unitary effect (Unitary Patent), in a single court system. The court brings its own procedure, as well as rules on competence, jurisdiction, language and substantive law. The UPC will operate alongside the existing system of national courts, which will continue to hear disputes about national patents and, in certain circumstances, European patents. The European Patent Office opposition procedure will also continue to be a feature of European patent litigation. A Practitioner's Guide to the Unified Patent Court is written by a team of judges and lawyers with many years of experience in patent litigation in France, Germany, The Netherlands and the UK. The book provides a practical and detailed guide to the UPC, in the context of the wider European patent system, with an emphasis on the structure and competence of the UPC, its procedures and remedies, jurisdiction, language and its relationship with the existing system. The book is aimed at in-house counsel, private practise lawyers, and patent attorneys using the UPC system.
