Ukraine establishes IP court

Ukraine

The process of establishing a new court in the Ukrainian judicial system, the High Intellectual Property Court, was recently launched by Decree 299/2017. The court will have jurisdiction over IP-related disputes and will act as a court of first instance and a court of appeal. The establishment of a specialised IP court is one of the most important changes brought about by the judicial reform and is expected to make the Ukrainian IP system more efficient and IP-related litigation more consistent.
