UPC

The UPC and Unitary Patent will introduce the most radical changes to patent litigation in Europe for 40 years.

The Unified Patent Court (UPC) and the European patent with unitary effect (Unitary Patent) may come into full force as early as 2022. A provisional period in which existing, granted European patents and applications may be opted-out from the UPC is expected to start in the months preceeding this. Find the latest news and insights of our Taylor Wessing UPC group on this page.
