Juve Patent has published its UK rankings for 2022 in which EIP's litigation and filing practices are ranked.
EIP’s Litigation practice is ranked four stars (out of five) with editorial commenting that ‘this IP boutique has carved out a solid position among the challengers of the market leaders in just a few years.’ The editorial mentions last year’s ‘attention-grabbing FRAND cases, following the double success before the Supreme Court in the high-profile SEP cases for Conversant and Unwired Planet in 2020’. It also notes that EIP’s expertise in SEPs is also being used ‘to broaden the client base away from NPEs to include implementers’. ‘With the two locations and the mixed approach of the UK team, EIP has a much better starting position for cross-border disputes and the UPC than other London boutiques with a single office policy’.
Head of Litigation, Gary Moss is listed as a leading individual for litigation who “has advanced law on FRAND” and is noted as a renowned partner leading the team.
In addition to EIP’s patent litigation ranking, the patent filing team is also recommended for Medical technology; Digital communication and computer technology; and Electronics. In addition, two partners are listed as recommended individuals: Darren Smyth for Chemistry and Digital communication and computer technology; and Jerome Spaargaren for Digital communication and computer technology and Electronics who is noted as “thorough, does comprehensive work”.
