Planning patent litigation in Europe? This may be for you

Bad news for supporters of bifurcation? German
invalidity proceedings take a lot longer than
infringement proceedings

I've recently learned from my friend Derek Tong (Managing Editor, Bloomberg BNA) that his title World Intellectual Property Report has now published the first of a six-part series by Jonathan Radcliffe (a partner in Mayer Brown's London office) which seeks to explore the strategic and planning considerations for patent litigation in Europe. Says Derek,
"Given the multinational nature of many patent disputes, Jonathan sets out to provide an understanding of the distinctive differences that operate within European jurisdictions and how these might be deployed to maximum advantage when managing an international patent litigation campaign".
