Jarden Consumer Solutions (Europe) Ltd v. SEB SA [2014] EWCA Civ 1629

Case Summary  |  Judgment  |  17 December 2014

 

Andrew Lykiardopoulos QC acted for Jarden Consumer Solutions in the appeal in this patent dispute with SEB. SEB (the makers of the Tefal Actifry) complained that Jarden’s Halo fryer infringed its patent rights and sought an injunction and damages. Before Arnold J claims 1-9 of SEB’s patent were found to be invalid but the judge held that claims 10, 11 and 13 were valid and infringed. The Court of Appeal overturned the decision on construction and held that the Halo fryer did not infringe SEBs patent rights.
