WilmerHale is delighted to invite you to a seminar in which Mr. Justice Birss, a judge of the Patents Court, and now the Business and Property Courts Supervising Judge for the Midland, Wales and Western Circuits, will discuss the future role of the UK in global and European IP litigation proceedings.

During what promises to be an interesting and lively evening, Mr. Justice Birss will address the UK's position in global IP litigation. The Judge will also discuss the introduction of the Business and Property Courts, the UPC, the shorter and flexible trials schemes, and some specific aspects of current litigation strategy, including Arrow declarations and FRAND.

Partners from WilmerHale's London Intellectual Property Litigation team (Trevor Cook, Matthew Shade, Anthony Trenton and Justin Watts) and IP Litigation Group Co-Chair Mark Selwyn will chair and introduce the evening, and discuss global IP litigation and possible future forum shopping in the UPC.

The seminar will be followed by drinks and canapés.
