The launch of the UPC could significantly alter patent law around the world. Whether you are a patent litigator, a patent prosecutor, or product counsel you need to understand this new global landscape and the impact that it could have on your existing domestic practices. This year, we bring you a special focus on the future of innovation protection in this changing environment. We have an intriguing fireside chat between the Director of the United States Patent Office and the Director of the Canadian Intellectual Property Office. We also have two keynotes from leading global jurists and thought leaders on protecting innovation: Hon. Dr. Klaus Grabinski, the President of the UPC Court of Appeal, and Lord Justice Colin Birss, U.K.’s Deputy Head of Civil Justice. (This is an in-person event only, there is no online component to this conference.)

This year’s APLI is not to be missed! We look forward to seeing you there.
