Analysing the Impact of Brexit on Patent Law and UK-EU relations – what future for the Unified Patent Court?

6.30pm

Panel Discussions

Public

Chair: Dr. Siva Thambisetty (LSE)

Panellists:

The event will be introduced by Professor Sir Alan Dashwood Q.C. (City, University of London) and will be followed by a wine reception.

Event description:

At this event Dr Luke McDonagh of The City Law School will launch his new book ‘European Patent Litigation in the Shadow of the Unified Patent Court’ (Edward Elgar, 2016) with a panel discussion on the impact of Brexit on patent litigation in the UK and elsewhere in Europe, with a particular focus on the forthcoming Unified Patent Court and  future relations between the UK and EU. This discussion is particularly timely given the UK’s recent announcement that, despite the ongoing Brexit process, the UK will ratify the Unified Patent Court Agreement – a decision that may demonstrate UK willingness to maintain a high level of European legal and economic integration, even after it leaves the EU (the so-called ‘soft Brexit’ option).
