The Unified Patent Court

Signalling the most radical change in European patent practice in over 40 years, the European Union's "unitary patent package" legislation will create a new unitary patent right and unified patent court system across Europe.

With our first-class patent litigation team having specialists in all three seats of the Central Division, as well as specialists based in Luxembourg, Allen & Overy is one of few leading international law firms equipped to advise applicants and litigants on navigating the new system.

To guide you in this process, click on the tabs above for more information on how the new regime will impact your patent litigation and business strategy.

For more information please contact: Geert Glas (Brussels), Laëtitia Bénard (Paris), Joachim Feldges (Munich), Mark Ridgway (London).
