The recent UK referendum result to leave the EU brings a new dawn for intellectual property. Though it will be several years before any wide-reaching changes come into effect, it is presumed that the UK will no longer be a part of the Unified Patent Court, which was set to have headquarters in London. Aside from this, patent litigation remains a core area of IP, with increasing avenues of work resulting from licensing and trade mark matters. The Intellectual Property Enterprise Court (IPEC) remains a success for small business claimants, although pressures on the system have slowed the court down considerably.

8 New Square is β€˜the standout intellectual property chambers’; with 30 barristers, the set is more than able to handle all aspects of IP law. Among a raft of recent headline cases was AstraZeneca v Krka, the largest-ever patent damages case in the UK courts.

At 11 South Square, β€˜the strength in depth of the set is self-evident’. Members regularly handle IP matters with a media slant and pharmaceutical patent disputes. In 2015, several counsel appeared in the Trunki design dispute. Henry Carr QC was recently appointed to the bench.

Three New Square is a market leader in patent issues with several barristers involved in the Warner-Lambert case. Members are also increasingly involved in soft IP disputes, such as the London Taxis trade mark dispute.

Hogarth Chambers contains β€˜exceptional standards at every level of call’ and has the depth of experience to handle a full range of IP disputes. A recent work highlight for chambers includes the Magmatic v PMS High Court design rights case.

At One Essex Court, the β€˜technical expertise is first class’. Members are well versed in soft IP disputes, including trade mark and copyright matters. Work highlights included the Fenty v Arcadia passing off case.

Blackstone Chambers has expertise in IP work with a media and entertainment crossover; the set is particularly recommended for soft IP litigation.
