The aim of this guide is to provide its readers with a pragmatic overview of the law and practice of patent litigation law across a variety of jurisdictions.

Each chapter of this guide provides information about the current issues affecting patent litigation in a particular country and addresses topics such as direct and indirect patent infringement, patent invalidity, post-grant opposition proceedings and injunctions, and future patent litigation growth areas.

The Q&A template for each chapter has been provided by Nicola Dagg of Kirkland & Ellis.
