Kevin Mooney and David Holland
With the Unified Patent Court and Unitary Patent on the horizon for 2022, we are delighted to welcome Kevin Mooney (Simmons & Simmons) to speak to us about the current status of the UPC project and likely developments in 2022.
Kevin will of course be well known to many as the force behind the UPC and Chairman of the Committee drafting the Rules of Procedure.
David Holland (Carpmaels & Ransford) is a European patent attorney who has been following the project very closely; he will be speaking about some of the immediate practical challenges that await UK patent practitioners with the commencement of the Court and unitary patent system which is now a distinct possibility in 2022.
