7 November, 2018

Engineering and Designs practice group partner James Short, and Chemical and Materials practice group partner Rohan Setna have contributed to the recently published Patent Litigation Law Review – Edition 2.

Their chapter, entitled “Oppositions and appeals before the European Patent Office”, discusses the European Patent Office’s recent introduction of a streamlined opposition procedure and the general trend of the Boards of Appeal towards restricting the appeal process to being a review of the decision at issue rather than an opportunity to present a fresh case.
