David Rose on UK's ratification of The Unified Patent Court Agreement

Intellectual Property Partner David Rose was recently quoted in LexisNexis on the UK's ratification of the Unified Patent Court Agreement  – an international treaty by which the international court will oversee patent disputes between contracting states.

David said "even before the uncertainty presented by Brexit and the German challenge, many anticipated that patentees would mainly look to opt their existing European patents out of the jurisdiction of the UPC".
