Brexit, a British snap election and now a constitutional case in Germany. The preparations for the UPC should be steaming ahead, but political developments keep getting in the way. It is hard to provide clients with adequate advice when there is no start-date in sight.

JUVE has been reporting on the UPC, the European Patent Office and developments at patent law firms and companies for twenty years – and now also in English. You are reading the first complimentary special UPC edition of JUVE Patent, our new e-paper, which we will publish four times a year.

Read all about why the UPC will come into operation, despite all signs to the contrary. The topics covered in the current issue are:


JUVE Patent – UPC Special 2017

  • Black Box: The latest information and background on the German constitutional complaint against the UPC.
  • Interview: UPC Chairman Alexander Ramsay tells JUVE about the current schedule and the role of the UPC in the Brexit negotiations.
  • Paris Favourites: Judge Thomas Kühnen leads Europe’s first patent judge ranking. How do patent judges from London, The Hague, Paris and Milan fare?
  • Turf War: How law firms are preparing to compete in the UPC.
