AIPPI UK will be hosting a trilogy of talks covering the law which relates to the procedural side of IP litigation. Details of the venue will follow.
The topics covered will address the various stages that can arise in litigation, starting with the scope of jurisdiction that the English courts have to grant relief, through interim remedies and all the way to the award of a final monetary sum. Whilst the talks form a trilogy of topics that are related to each other, each talk will stand alone.
Part 1: Jurisdiction
Jonathan Moss of Hogarth Chambers will cover the rules on jurisdiction for IP rights and the impact those rules have on whether a remedy can be sought against a defendant in the English courts. He will also touch upon what the jurisdiction landscape may look like after Brexit.
Part 2: Interim remedies
Nicholas Caddick QC will address the recent case law on search orders and freezing injunctions, as well as how an applicant must comply with the duty of full and frank disclosure. He will also address some of the other matters that arise on all forms of interim remedies brought before the court, including the provision of cross-undertakings.
Part 3: Damages and account of profits
Andrew Norris QC will discuss the rules applied by the courts when seeking a monetary award, whether in damages or by way of account of profits. He will also consider the rules on apportionment and other matters which will impact the scope of any monetary sum awarded by the courts.
