Thumb Up

20% of my work comes from expert witness work, in Europe and the UK. I have been uniformly impressed by the judges in the European Patent Office (very interested sitting in a hearing - with multiple simultaneous translation and having the English coming through just long enough after the original speaker is slightly discombobulating when I speak good - but not perfect French and German) , although not so impressed by many of the European lawyers who frequently seem to be poorly briefed compare with their UK equivalents.
