The introduction of the Unitary Patent and the associated Unified Patent Court will be a landmark moment in European patent law.

Welcome to the section of our website dealing with the Unitary Patent and the Unified Patent Court. After many years of negotiations, the various legal instruments have now been finalised and the details of the Unitary Patent Package are largely known. Although all relevant legislation has yet to be ratified, on this site we have provided a number of helpful articles to assist applicants in understanding the new system. In particular, you’ll find detailed information about the Unitary Patent itself and the new Unified Patent Court. We’ve also provided information on the predicted cost of the new system to applicants, as well as guidance on filing strategy issues that you need to begin considering.
