My colleague Dawn Rudenko Albert wrote a valuable article about the impact of the Brexit on IP rights. While it is not specifically about Chicago IP litigation, it answers questions that many Chicago IP litigants are asking. I am also cross-posting this on my Retail Patent Litigation Blog. Here is Dawn’s article:

 Although the United Kingdom (UK) vote to leave the European Union (EU) will ultimately impact intellectual property (IP) rights in both territories, the UK remains a member of the EU until the exit terms are formalized, so there is no immediate impact and will likely be none for several years. The Treaty on European Union, Article 50, provides for a minimum of two years to formalize the UK’s exit from the EU.
