As we enter the summer season, we are delighted to announce the further expansion of our German office with the appointment of Dr Uli Foerstl who joins patent attorney Dr Hanns-Juergen Grosse. This is an exciting development for the firm and further enhances our client service capabilities across Europe. We will also be closely monitoring developments in respect of the UPC this summer which has now, unfortunately, been further delayed. We wish all of our readers a very pleasant summer.
