We are thrilled to announce the launch of DLA Piper’s newest handbook, Global Patent Laws. Global Patent Laws is designed to provide you with an overview of the key patent laws and dispute resolution procedures that are relevant to businesses operating in key jurisdictions around the world. For each of these jurisdictions, the handbook covers such areas as:

The acts that infringe a patent
The availability of and approach to granting preliminary injunctions
The ability to obtain evidence
The approach to assessing validity
Typical time to trial

For companies operating in multiple countries, managing the risk of – and successfully bringing or defending – patent proceedings can often depend on strategic exploitation of the different approaches among jurisdictions. Accordingly, our handbook also allows you to compare the laws and procedures of one country with those in others.
