KRAUS & WEISERT filed the first opt-out request in history

On March 1, 2023 the sunrise period for opting out EP patents and applications started. KRAUS & WEISERT was ready from the start and filed the first three opt-out requests in the (so far, short) history of the Unified Patent Court. After filing the 19th patent application with the European Patent Office in 1978, this is again proof of our speed and efficiency in handling client matters.

Our partner Dr. Claus Beckmann who overlooked the setting up of our IT systems says: "We successfully opted out the first EP patent 8 minutes after the start of the system. Of course, we will follow the hopefully exiting development of the unitary patent system and Unified patent court and be ready to act for our clients." (see also here >>>)
