Handler firms end their long-running patent infringement legal actions “by mutual agreement”

  • Manitou BF and J.C. Bamford Excavators Limited have decided, by mutual agreement, to put an end to all patent infringement litigation

The disputes initiated from May 2017 concerned three European patents and led to a set of legal proceedings in France, the United Kingdom and Italy. The end of these disputes has no impact on the present and future activity of both parties, nor on the characteristics of the products marketed by each of them.
