EIP’s expertise highly ranked in JUVE Patent UK 2023

JUVE Patent has published its UK rankings for 2023 in which EIP’s litigation and filing practices are ranked.

EIP’s Litigation practice is ranked four stars (out of five) with editorial commenting that the “IP boutique continues to be one of the most present litigation teams in the UK market when it comes to mobile communication and FRAND cases.” While also mentioning “EIP began to consolidate its crucial development in the life sciences sector.” The editorial mentions last year’s busy year with “PanOptis and its subsidiary Optis Cellular in a dispute against Apple.” Juve also notes the “enormous presence in SEP cases ensures EIP enjoys a solid position among the challengers of the market.”

EIP’s presence in Europe is increasing as “EIP is currently one of the most expansive IP boutiques in Europe. After establishing a well-positioned litigation team in Germany years ago, EIP opened a prosecution practice in Stockholm in 2022.” While in autumn 2022 EIP partnered up with Paris-based litigation firm Amar Goussu Staub forming EIP Amar for the UPC. EIP Amar “now guarantees the firm access to Paris as a central UPC venue. EIP can assemble large, mixed teams for UPC cases. This is an advantage over some other British, German or French litigation boutiques, which have to rely on their best-friend firms.”

Head of Litigation, Gary Moss is said to be a “terrific litigator with deep knowledge of FRAND matters.”

In addition to EIP’s patent litigation ranking, the patent filing team is also recommended for Medical technology; Digital communication and computer technology; and Electronics. In addition, three partners are listed as recommended individuals: Darren Smyth for Chemistry / Digital communication and computer technology; and Jerome Spaargaren for Digital communication and computer technology / Electronics; and Monika Rai for Pharma and biotechnology who is noted as “one of the best EPO litigators in the sector”.
