Litigation starts in the Commercial Court, which is a specialist Court that hears intellectual property and bankruptcy cases. A decision can be expected within six months of filing a Claim. Defended proceedings will usually involve ten or more hearings, and proceedings are conducted on papers, which allows a high degree of client control.
Criminal enforcement is a quick and effective tool for addressing infringement of intellectual property rights. Deliverables are negotiated undertakings, a public apology, and destruction of seized goods.
