Hogan Lovells comments on Unified Patent Court ruling

London, 20 March 2020 – Today, March 20, the German Federal Constitutional Court concluded that the Act of Approval for the Unified Patent Court (UPC) Agreement is null and void, after it was passed with an insufficient quorum in the German parliament.

Winfried Tilmann, Of Counsel at Hogan Lovells, commented on the future of the UPC: "I believe that both the relevant policy makers and the European industry continue to be interested in an effective unified patent system in Europe. The idea of a unified European law with a single court will continue to be viable and even point the way forward for other areas of law".
