The patent landscape in Europe is set to change dramatically with the introduction of the Unitary European Patent and Unified Patent Court (UPC). The various working groups of the UPC Preparatory Committee, together with national patent offices, are continuing to work out details of the rules for Europe’s new patent system, which we expect will enter into force some time in 2016, or early in 2017.
This note provides answers to questions relating to the new system and outlines key decisions that applicants for European patents and patent holders will need to make when the system comes into effect.

The Annual Dinner of the Association of Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys took place on 22 May 2015, at the Beaufield Mews in Stillorgan, Dublin, and was well attended not only by the local profession but also by dignitaries from the Patents Office and IP professionals in the United Kingdom.
Ansons received two prestigious awards during the evening.
