Unitary Patent (UP) and Unified Patent Court (UPC)

Register for the AIPLA webinar, taking place, Thursday, March, 2, 2023 at 9:30 AM PST – 11 AM PST.


The Unified Patent Court (UPC) will enter into force in June of 2023. That means that applicants and proprietors of European patent applications that have been granted European patents would need to determine their strategy for their European IP. If no action is taken, then the legal framework of the UPC will affect even the already granted EP patents. This webinar will discuss the effects of the UPC coming into force, as well as the options and decisions that the applicants and proprietors need to consider and implement.

In this virtual webinar, a panel of practitioners will discuss the recent trends and significant challenges surrounding the implementation of the Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court. One of the speakers will be Malgorzata (“Gosia”) Kulczycka from Hickman Becker Bingham Ledesma LLP.
