European patent prosecution & litigation webinars

Recordings now available! Our recent programme of European patent prosecution & litigation webinars provided an update on case law from an extremely eventful year at the European Patent Office (EPO), the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), and covered decisions by the German and the UK courts. This programme of webinars will be of interest to in-house counsel and associates who are involved or interested in European prosecution and litigation.
