What we do

We handle cases relating to intellectual property disputes, including:

  • registered designs
  • patents
  • registered trade marks
  • copyrights
  • other intellectual property rights

If the amount sought (damages) is under £500,000 then the case can also be heard by the Patents Court or the Chancery Division. These 2 courts will hear cases where the amount sought is over £500,000, unless all parties agree that we may hear it.

Certain intellectual property disputes where the amount sought is £10,000 or less will be handled by our ‘small claims track’ and will be heard at the Thomas More Building in the Royal Courts of Justice.

Who we are

We are a specialist court within the Chancery Division of the High Court of Justice.

We are based at the Rolls Building in London. Cases are heard by Judge Hacon.
