nullity file, nullity proceedings
Explanation:
Acc. to Romain,
Nichtigkeitsverfahren = nullity proceedings or invalidation suit

The term nullity is well supported by relevant references:
In proceedings which have as their object the registration, validity, [or] nullity [, or revocation or infringement] of patents, trade marks, designs or other similar rights required to be deposited or registered, the courts of the Contracting State in which the deposit or registration has been applied for, has taken place or, under the terms of an international convention, is deemed to have taken place, have exclusive jurisdiction. This shall not apply to copyright or any neighboring rights, even though registration or deposit of such rights is possible.

3) In determining the extent of legal protection due account shall be taken of any statement limiting the scope of the claims made by the applicant or by the owner of the patent during the examination procedure for grant of a patent or during nullity proceedings.

revocation better than nullity


Explanation:
I agree with uel; however, revocation seems to be more frequently used in the context of patents (statistically speaking); nullity is more often used with other types of agreements. Both terms are correct, but in terms of frequency of use, "revocation" is the better term to go with.

Another argument in favour of revocation


Explanation:
When you "invalidate" a patent, you "withdraw it" - that's the basic idea (and the proceedings) behind it and that's why "revocation" is the preferred term.
