Free to attend.

There is lots to talk about at this year’s event, which will be chaired by Huw Evans, including some blockbusting decisions from the UK courts and of course, the first six months of the UPC.

Alisa Carter will kick off the event by separating myth from reality in regards to the trends in UK court judgments and Seiko Hidaka will evaluate the outcomes of the UPC cases to help us refine our European strategy.

Alex Brodie will be addressing the ongoing developments in the SEP/FRAND case law before Gordon Harris delivers his much-anticipated annual review of UK patent law in 2023.

To wrap up the session, Michael Carter will be looking into the future and identifying what to watch out for in 2024.
