Where the IP Industry Comes Together

The Pharma and Biotech Patent Litigation Summit returns to Anantara Grand Hotel for 3 days practical discussion surrounding the leading patent litigation topics in Europe, with a compare and contrast method with jurisdictions further afield. Our internationally recognised summit will provide you with the necessary practical tools to both defend patent litigation challenges for your pharma and biotech product, whilst also maximising your litigation strategy to allow for successful IP protection. With the central case law and regulatory updates, this event is a must-attend for anyone with a focus on the European market and working within life science IP. 

This year’s summit will host the cross-industry UPC Litigation Forum 2024 as a one-day meeting on 22nd January. This event will host the leading litigators and patent attorneys, in-house counsel and judges for a practical review of the early-stage experience of the UPC. At this event, you will network with leading figures in the industry and gain unique insights on the latest regulatory changes and case-law updates.
