The General Court of the European Union, former composed of 46 Judges, welcomed seven additional Judges on 26 September 2019.

Taking account of the increased number of Judges, the organisation of the Court has been redesigned. The number of Chambers of the General Court increased from nine to ten and are now specialised which means that six Chambers will deal exclusively with intellectual property matters. The General Court (EGC) is a constituent court of the Court of Justice of the European Union and hears disputes – for example such as those by persons who have been refused a trade mark by EUIPO, the EU Trade Mark and designs registry.
