“Tritton set the bar for all comprehensive titles on intellectual property in the common market. Now in its fifth edition, it still towers above other titles in this field.” (Foreword, Professor Anselm Kamperman Sanders)

“There is hardly any need to introduce Tritton on Intellectual Property in Europe. Now in its fifth edition, the book has established itself over the years and the editions are must-have texts on European intellectual property law.
This new edition continues the proud tradition of comprehensive coverage at a high standard.” (Professor Paul Torremans, European Intellectual Property Review)

“The extensive and exhaustive coverage of such a broad range of IP makes this book essential reading for all intellectual property practitioners.” (Hayleigh Bosher, IPKat)

“…one of the most sought after titles for a lawyer practicing Intellectual Property law tends to be a book which can shed some light on the implications that EU directives and regulations have on the areas that comprise IP law. If there is a title that comes to mind when seeking such guidance, it most generally tends to be Tritton’s take on IP in Europe…” (Míchel Olmedo Cuevas, Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice
