The patent system of Europe will be transformed trough the Unitary Patent Court, a central court for patent infringement. Granted European Patents will be under the jurisdiction of the Unitary Patent Court as soon as Germany ratifies an international agreement which will likely occur late 2022 or early 2023.

Patent assignees have the option to opt out patents from the jurisdiction of the Unitary Patent Court, and it is advisable to do so in many cases, and to do it as soon as possible after ratification. Noréns monitors the ratification process closely and support clients that want to opt-outs patents.
