AIPPI UK are hosting a trilogy of talks covering the law which relates to the procedural side of IP litigation.
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 - 23 June 2020
Jonathan Moss of Hogarth Chambers covered 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 also touched upon what the jurisdiction landscape may look like after Brexit.
Part 2: Damages and account of profits - 8 September 2020
Andrew Norris QC (Hogarth Chambers) will discuss the rules applied by the UK courts when seeking a monetary award, whether in damages or by way of an account of profits. He will consider the need for ‘sound imagination and the practice of the broad axe’ in damages inquiries as well as apportionment in accounts of profits. The talk will also touch on the extent of directors’ financial liability.
Part 3: 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.
