The Principles of Patent Claim Interpretation in the UK
We observe that the recent introduction of infringement by equivalence from the Supreme Court (2017 UKSC 48; Actavis (UK) Limited v Eli Lilly Company and others) does not mean that purposive interpretation of patent claims has been altogether dropped.
UK Ratifies Unified Patent Court Agreement
On 26 April 2018, the UK ratified an agreement to set up a Unified Patent Court for Europe. Only Germany now needs to ratify for the agreement to come into force which will see a court having jurisdiction on patent disputes in pharmaceuticals and life sciences being based in London.
TLIP attorneys work in specialist technology and legal fields. Our attorneys include an astrophysicist, a synthetic chemist, an IBM patent engineer, an electronic engineer, a mechanical engineer and a toxicologist. Whilst we are mostly known for our original patent drafting and patent prosecution, we also advise our clients across all IP rights: including trade secrets, contracts and licensing. We combine this with a good dose of real life experience and learning from clients that continually push the boundaries of what is possible.
