UK EU Referendum

On 1 January 2021 the United Kingdom (UK) left the European Union (EU). The European Patent Convention (EPC) is entirely independent from the EU. Therefore, the UK leaving the EU did not impact the UK’s membership of the EPC. As a UK-based firm of patent attorneys, Sagittarius IP continues to be able to file European patent applications and continues to be able to handle clients’ present and future cases at the EPO. A granted European patent continues to become a bundle of national patents in all validated states including the UK.
