EPO confirms Brexit will not affect European patents

The European Patent Office has confirmed that the outcome of the UK referendum on 23 June does not affect the status of European patents in respect of the UK. The UK will remain a member of the European Patent Organisation, and our firm will continue to be able to represent you and your clients before the European Patent Office in all pre- and post-grant proceedings.

The EPO President’s statement can be found here.
