The Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court represent a new era in European patent practice. Effective 1 June, the UP and UPC cover most European Union countries, making UP and UPC considerations a growing concern for companies that do business on the continent. With an office in Munich – home of the European Patent Office and a branch of the UPC – and extensive experience practicing in European courts, Fish & Richardson is well-positioned to advise clients on navigating the UP and UPC.
