The Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court will commence on 1 April 2023, and will change the way patents are obtained and enforced in Europe.

Navigating the patent system can be a minefield at the best of times. Now that things are changing, it may feel daunting to try and relearn everything you understand about the system.

That is why we have created a Knowledge Hub of articles with practical information and advice to help you navigate your way through the new patent system in Europe. The articles include everything from the background of the system and changes, to the geographical areas covered and how to adapt strategy for your IP protection in Europe.


Visit our Knowledge Hub and discover everything you need to know about the coming changes. We’d also be happy to have a chat and help answer any questions you have.
