The Patents County Court - Much more than a patents court

SPEAKER: HHJ Birss

HHJ Birss, will be visiting Manchester to share with us his experiences of presiding over the Patents County Court and to explain how the reformed court can, and has, made IP litigation affordable to SME's.  HHJ Birss will also give an insight on how to get the most out of litigation in the Patents County Court and how he has kept the court operating to short time frames.

HHJ Birss is kindly coming up from London after court so we will have a slightly different format from usual.  There will be a cash bar from 6.30pm with dinner (including wine) commencing at 7.30pm.  Dinner will be followed by HHJ Birss’ speech which is expected to be concluded by 10.00pm.
