Webinar: The pros and cons of opting out of the UPC

Date: 21 June 2022

Location: Online

The European Unitary Patent and the Unified Patent Court (UPC) are coming soon. Applicants for patents in Europe will have more choices than ever, as do owners of existing patents.


We will be holding a webinar on 21 June at 3pm BST, discussing the merits of the Unitary Patent, its value for money and risks.


Join partners Hugh Dunlop and Gerrit Schultz for an expert review of the Unitary Patent, the UPC and their implications for patent owners.
