did not anticipate the claimant's patent, but rather that the latter improved on the former
Explanation:
I'm not sure there is enough context provided to accurately render this passage. For example, I am assuming that "anterior patente" in this context refers to a patent registered prior to the plaintiff's/claimant's as per the Spanish "first to file" system, and not to the "foregoing (or) aforementioned patent." Nevertheless, this may be an option:

...the third (expert) opinion categorically stating that the prior patent did not anticipate/foresee/prefigure/envision the plaintiff's/claimant's patent, but rather that the latter (the plaintiff's/claimant's patent) improved on the former (the prior patent).

If this is for a British audience, I assume you will want to translate "actora" as "claimant" rather than "plaintiff", but I offer both options.
