Who are We?

Kluwer Patent Blog is a publication of Kluwer Law International providing information and news on European patent law. We have gathered together experts from leading IP firms, to report on the latest developments. They in turn have enlisted professional colleagues from diverse backgrounds to offer both established and new voices into the mix. The result is a fresh, high-quality, and timely examination of the world of European patent law.

What Is Our Focus?

The Kluwer Patent Blog provides short columns on European patent law and occasionally US patent law where there is a cross border interest (e.g. an important case that is also litigated in Europe or a substantial revision of the law). This includes reporting on selected case law, new developments in legislation and new publications. In addition to the reporting we also intend to provide analysis on legal developments and general practice. We focus on substantive patent law, i.e. not procedural EPO issues (or perhaps only very important procedural changes). In addition to these columns we will also post the head notes of our patent cases product on this platform. Our primary audience is patent attorneys and lawyers practising in Europe.
