Plesner has set up a dedicated UPC specialist team. Our UPC Task Force advises on all aspects of the UPC and the new unitary patent.

Plesner's UPC Task Force is composed of lawyers from our IP and Life Science practice, all of whom have extensive experience in patents and patent litigation.

Plesner's UPC Task Force has followed the birth of the UPC and the unitary patent from the early beginnings, and among other things authored the book The European Patent Court and several articles on the UPC, and the UPC Task Force members are frequent speakers on the UPC and patent law in general.
