CD Paris, May 10, 2024, request for simultaneous interpretation, UPC_CFI_367_2023

3 min Reading time

Key takeaways

It does not matter what language skills a specific representative of an international team of representatives has. Otherwise, international teams of representatives with different language skills would lead to a significant increase in procedural costs due to simultaneous interpretation of oral hearings.

Given the nature of an international court, not all of the parties’ attendants (e.g. managing directors) are able to follow the legal discussion during the hearing.

Unlike the defendant in the infringement proceedings, the plaintiff is not under comparable time pressure in the nullity proceedings, as the plaintiff is able to consult comprehensively with its representatives and plan its litigation strategy at least during the preparation of the action.

The technical equipment available in the court can be used.
