United Kingdom: Patent Law & Litigation

View Session Speakers

The courts in the United Kingdom have been a forum of choice for the resolution of disputes between international parties, with the promise of an experienced judiciary and a cost-efficient approach to discovery and expert testimony. The English Patents Court is no exception, with multi-jurisdictional patent disputes often featuring an English action. In addition to the availability of specialist judges and legal teams, the ability to obtain some discovery when needed (but without the extensive, onerous and costly approach to discovery in the United States), to cross-examine experts at trial and to obtain declaratory relief make the UK an attractive jurisdiction. The thorough and reasoned judgments that can prove useful in parallel litigation across Europe and the general availability of injunctions are also key drivers for patentees.

Join Tim Powell and Siddharth Kusumakar, partners in the London Office of Powell Gilbert LLP, for this conversation on patent law and patent litigation in the United Kingdom. Moderated by Gene Quinn (IPWatchdog).
