EIP ranked in first Juve list of leading UK IP firms

EIP has been described as “a role model for how to develop a mixed patent practice” in the first ranking of leading UK IP firms published by Juve.

Three partners were ranked as “recommended individuals” – Gary Moss, Jerome Spaargaren and Darren Smyth.

EIP success in “two precedent cases for Unwired Planet and Conversant concerning FRAND” was highlighted, with researchers commenting “these are particularly significant with the European patent community currently looking to the UK Supreme Court for an indication as to how London patent courts will rule on global licences.”

Juve has analysed and ranked the German patent market for 20 years and for its first ranking of UK firms, gathered almost 1,400 individual recommendations from attorneys working in private practice and in-house, obtained data from 100 firms and conducted 40 research meetings with barristers, law firms and patent attorney firms.
