Federal Court of Canada – Lunch and Learns

LUNCH and LEARN- Intellectual Property Litigation in the UK experience – Presentation by Sir Henry Carr

Overview


This seminar focused on the developments in intellectual property litigation in the UK.

Objectives

This presentation was intended to share Justice Carr’s experience in intellectual property litigation and whether any of the successful strategies in the UK could be adapted within Canadian Courts.


Summary

This Lunch and Learn presentation led by Justice Henry Carr, Chancery Division High Court of England, discussed the development in IP litigation in the UK, and how Courts in England and Wales have increased efficiency whilst reducing the costs of litigation. Justice Carr described how the IP bar has adapted to new approaches.

The discussion following the presentation questioned whether similar efficiencies could be encouraged in Canadian Courts, given the complexity of IP litigation.

All Members of the Court were invited, although the topic was of particular interest to Judges and Prothonotaries who determine a significant amount of Intellectual Property applications and actions.

The presentation and discussion was approximately one and a half hours in duration.
