The European Unitary Patent System and Unified Patent Court

UPC structure

The UPC will consist of a court of first instance and an appellate court. The Court of First Instance will comprise a Central Division, split between Paris, London and Munich (depending on technical subject-matter), plus local and regional divisions. The local and regional divisions will hear infringement claims, whereas the Central Division will hear claims for revocation of a Unitary Patent.
