An IP Litigator article by IP litigation partner and chair Steve Pepe and IP litigation counsel Matthew Shapiro examined the strategic considerations for launch of the Unified Patent Court.

The UPC launched in June 2023 following years of preparation by European Union member states. It has enormous potential to reshape global patent law, with jurisdiction over patent infringement and revocation actions across 17 member states. The authors analyze key considerations to maximize competitive positions for patent holders, applicants, challengers and licensees.
