UPC Litigation & IP Litigation

With more than 60 European patent attorneys with an accepted additional qualification allowing them to act as representatives before the Unified Patent Court (UPC), J A Kemp has the strength in depth to represent clients in patent litigation at the UPC in any field of technology.

The European Patent Convention (EPC), as applied by the European Patent Office (EPO), is one of the main sources of law of the Unified Patent Court Agreement. The procedure of the Unified Patent Court to a large extent mirrors the Opposition procedure at the EPO. European Patent Attorney UPC Representatives thus have unique skills required for successful representation at the UPC, and J A Kemp attorneys are currently handling two of the 25 revocation actions so far filed at the UPC. J A Kemp is thus well placed to help clients navigate the early days of the UPC as the new court develops its procedures and case law.

A number of partners at J A Kemp are qualified solicitors with extensive experience in litigation before the English courts, and are therefore well placed to represent clients in contentious intellectual property matters in the Patent Court, the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court, and the UK Intellectual Property Office. Litigators based in our French subsidiary can also assist with contentious proceedings before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). The firm is thus uniquely well placed to co-ordinate and run litigation across multiple tribunals across Europe.

J A Kemp partners have been involved in many of the most important intellectual property disputes over the years and have supported multi-jurisdiction litigation projects in many parts of the world. The group adopts a practical and commercial approach and provides for a cost-effective external resource when client needs dictate.
