The i - Patents County Court makeover nears completion

The streamlining of the PCC took a step forward this week following the signing of an Order bringing into effect changes to the level of damages that can be awarded to a successful party in respect of patent and design cases to £500,000.

This latest move is part of a series of changes originally suggested to Lord Jackson as part of his review on costs, by the court’s users committee.

For further information about the changes and their impact for SMEs see our Insight Report on the PCC.
