UPC decides on redistribution of cases formerly allocated to London

The UPC has finally published a decision about what will happen with the cases that were originally allocated to the London branch of the central division. Actions related to patents in IPC section (A – human necessities) shall be assigned to the seat in Paris while actions related to patents in IPC section (C – chemistry and metallurgy) shall be assigned to the section in Munich.

The announcement does not mention anything about whether a third branch of the central division will be opened in Milan, nor whether this decision is an interim solution. According to various sources, negotiations are still ongoing.
