UK to Ratify the UPC Agreement

The Unified Patent Court (UPC) is a proposed new court which will be open to all participating member states of the European Union (EU). Following the UK's vote to leave the EU (Brexit) there has been uncertainty as to whether the UK would ratify the UPC Agreement, which at present is a necessary step for the UPC to come into existence. Furthermore, whether the UK, as a territory, can fall under the jurisdiction of the UPC has been in doubt because this option is currently open only to EU member states. In a move which has removed at least some of the uncertainty, the UK has announced that it intends to ratify the UPC Agreement. It now seems likely that the UPC will come into existence by the end of 2017. There still remains a question mark over whether the UK, as a territory, can fall under the jurisdiction of the UPC, but it seems likely that the UK will be hoping to negotiate an agreement which allows this.

We sent our Business Development Manager Mahir Raoof to have a chat with Peak UK’s Managing Director Pete Astles to learn more about how the company got started, working with British Canoeing and the English Institute of Sport and just what it feels like to see your invention help to achieve gold.
