We are pleased to report that our client, Process Components Limited (PCL), has been victorious in the High Court in a case concerning the sale and licence of intellectual property rights. PCL was represented by our UK Intellectual Property team and secured a win on every issue in the claim. The decision is of interest in and of itself as it deals with some interesting issues around the interpretation of contracts and the scope of the doctrine of ‘estoppel’. We have produced a briefing which gives more information about the issues in the case.
Our UK IP team continues to advise clients on a wide range of IP matters. For more information on this High Court ruling, or IP issues more generally, please feel free to contact Carlton Daniel or Carl Rohsler – both IP partners who led PCL’s High Court claim.
