Self representation in court
I have a building patent exclusive to the UK that I think may be have been potentially infringed, though at this stage I can not say for sure and need to do more research however I have been informed by a solicitor that I may well stand a very good chance in winning my case and added if it were not so he certainly would have told me to forget it and not to waist my time. But they also said first of all, more ground work needs to be done to add to it's credibility. This of course will cost money which I don't have. I am now thinking of standing as my own representative which will cost a lot less. Unfortunately the law on patents in the UK seems to be not only complex but a bit of a grey area in terms of defrentiation, and clarity. But this will not put me off as I am willing to study the law myself so that in court I will know what I am talking about and be able to present a convincing case.
Please can any one advise me as to the procedure of taking a patent infringment to court and standing in as my own representative. At this stage I don't have a clue. I'm not even sure if a patent case would be allowed for self representation. Does any one know? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.
