The annual gathering exploring the inherently complex and continually contentious pharma and biotech patent litigation

Life Science patent litigation filings are predicted to rise at new levels. Be part of the only event where the “Who’s Who” of the European Life Sciences Patent Bar gather each year to shape the patent litigation policies and procedures throughout the continent.

The Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology industries are becoming increasingly competitive in the IP sphere. There will inevitably be areas where overlapping, interference, and marketing coming into play. However, the ability to secure and capitalize on the investment in patent rights and IP protections will mean a greater economic return for your products as well as IP portfolio.

C5’s 11th Annual Pharma and Biotech Patent Litigation Forum comes at a significant time in Europe. With Brexit looming and the impending ratification of UPC from the German national courts, there are plenty of uncertainties for Pharmaceutical and Biotech companies conducting business in the European Market. This event is where you will find clarification on such matters and their consequential impact on patent litigation strategies.


Key Themes for 2019

  • The Impact of Brexit on the UPC
  • The Trade Secret Directive’s effect on patent rights
  • The repercussions of recent Court of Justice SPC rulings
  • Digital concerns for the quality of patents
  • Functional patent claims and related burden of proof analyses

International IP Focus Sessions on:

  • U.S.: IP actions in the District Courts and the PTO’s PTAB
  • Asia: The impact of China IP on international IP
