Managing IP was delighted to host the MIP European Patent Forum USA for the third time on November 30 in Palo Alto and December 2 in New York.

The Forum identified final preparations that organisations and firms need to be undertaking in order to maximise the benefits of the proposed UPC in 2017. Delegates also examined litigation strategies in Germany, France and the UK, while analysing the factors that businesses need to consider when choosing their jurisdictions. Through case scenarios of key industries, the forum also provided practical solutions to IP professionals' unanswered questions arising from the past six months. 

An audience of over 120 patent and IP counsel addressed the major issues facing European patent reform and debated on pertinent topics and technical matters.
