Unitary patent and Unified Patent Court fully operative, UPC team SIB is ready!

The Unitary patent and Unified Patent Court (UPC) are fully operative as from today, 1 June 2023 – and so is our UPC Team!

The Unitary patent has uniform validity, with no need for national validations, in a block of 17 member states of the European Union – a number that will increase to 24 in due course.UPC Team

The UPC, holding exclusive competence on Unitary patents, can issue decisions applicable in all Unitary patent validity states; the UPC also has exclusive competence for European patents in UPC member states.
