German Federal Court for more transparency in patent proceedings

A recent ruling by the German Federal Court obliges courts to weigh the disclosure of trade secrets in patent disputes more carefully in the future. This was preceded by a dispute over a manufacturing process for silicone implants between the parties Silimed and Polytech before the Frankfurt Higher Regional Court, which must now hear the underlying vindication action again.
At the same time, Silimed has filed a claim action against a partial patent of Polytech at the Munich Regional Court, in which the plaintiff is represented by attorney-at-law Dr. Michael Schneider.
