News for those following the development of Europe's planned Unified Patent Court.
The Intellectual Property Office has announced the location of both the London section of the Central Division and the UK Local Division.
Described by IP Minister, Baroness Neville-Rolfe, as
"an ideal home for a modern court to support the UK’s and Europe’s leading edge innovative companies"
the court will occupy part of a modern office building, Aldgate Tower. This is at the eastern end of the City of London, quite a distance from London's main courts district.
