We are pleased to announce a new one-day seminar, presented jointly by Management Forum and Patent Resources Group, that will cover what all patent attorneys need to know about the European Unitary Patent and Unified Court. This ground-breaking seminar will be held at the Spring 2013 Advanced Courses Program on April 10, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando, Florida.

On June 29, 2012, the European Council decided on the seat of the central division of the new Unified Patent Court.  The EU Parliament is expected to conclude the negotiations imminently on the EU’s future unitary patent system.  The new single patent litigation system proposed, embodied in the Unified Patent Court, will have exclusive competence in respect of actions relating to the validity or infringement of a European unitary patent.  It is essential for all patent practitioners to know how this new system will work and how to formulate strategies for working with – or without – it.  This course provides an essential guide to all these issues, presented by leading practitioners from the UK and Germany.

The course includes presentation of simple decision and timing flowcharts intended for re-use by attendees in their own presentations to colleagues, for efficient and professional dissemination of know-how across businesses.
