With final decisions of the European Patent Reform and the Unified Patent Court
imminent, it is essential that the specifics are understood in order to make the necessary adjustments to your strategy. The MIP European Patent Reform USA event examined the new court and financial considerations of the unitary patent in detail and took an in-depth look at the most pressing issues for US companies.

By examining the final steps and most recent updates on the European Patent
Reform, this forum provided an invaluable analysis of the details and specifics of
the UPC, financial considerations of the unified patent and patent enforcement
strategies. With an in-depth analysis of global litigation under the new court this
forum helped delegates to finalise their strategies and understand how to stay one step ahead of competitors.

The programme addressed the major issues at hand and encouraged participation
