Unlock the potential of European patent enforcement and the Unified Patent Court with Marks & Clerk
In the short time since it started operation in June 2023, the Unified Patent Court (UPC) has already become an integral component of the patent litigation landscape in Europe. This new forum for resolving patent disputes represents an exciting and long-awaited development, but navigating the complexities of the new system and its interplay with the existing national court system may seem overwhelming. That's where Marks & Clerk comes in.
At Marks & Clerk, we pride ourselves on our wealth of experience and successful track record in the courts and at the EPO. We don't settle for routine service - our reputation is built on excellence, and we strive for it every single time. With our patent attorneys and litigation lawyers working together seamlessly on disputes across Europe and beyond, and our trusted network of IP firms across Europe, we ensure the best possible outcomes for our clients. We have extensive knowledge of relevant legislation and years of experience, so you can trust us to deliver optimal results.
Our patent experts can handle the entire process with speed and efficiency to alleviate the stress that can come with navigating new processes and procedures. You can breathe easier knowing that your case is in the safe hands of a leading firm of intellectual property specialists. We have over 70 attorneys with the right to represent our clients in front of the UPC working alongside our highly experienced patent litigators. In addition, a number of our UPC experts have not only completed a prestigious European patent litigation course in Milan, but have been invited to lecture. We also already have first-hand experience of proceedings in the UPC on behalf of a pioneering, global medical device company.
Fully diversify and strengthen your European patent portfolio with the Unitary Patent
Developed in parallel with the UPC is the new unitary patent, a single patent derived from a European patent application that provides protection covering multiple countries. Our patent prosecution experts ensure that our clients obtain the best possible mix of national patents, (non-unitary) European patents and unitary patents to optimise protection for their inventions in Europe.
