Fish in Europe

 

Our Munich office, opened in 2009, offers a broad range of IP services in Germany and Europe.

Our European office is located in Munich, home of the European and German Patent Offices, as well as the German Federal Patent Court. Our attorneys handle a wide range of European IP matters, including patent prosecution and patent litigation. The attorneys in our Munich office also serve clients in European trademark, design, unfair competition and antitrust matters.

More patent litigation is conducted in Germany than in any other part of Europe. Fish attorneys handle infringement litigations before the District Courts and Courts of Appeals, EPO opposition cases, and German nullity cases in the Federal Patent Court and the Federal Supreme Court.

EU Unitary Patent and UPC

In early 2013, the European Union adopted a package including two regulations that will create a European Patent with unitary effect (“Unitary Patent”) for participating states, and may lower translation and post-grant costs for parties electing to use the Unitary Patent. The package also includes a Unified Patent Court (UPC) Agreement (UPCA- a treaty) for signature by the interested EU states that will create a Unified Patent Court, which eventually will handle all litigation involving patents issued by the European Patent Office that are validated in participating EU states, including both the regular, nationally validated European Patents and the new Unitary Patents.
