Post-Grant Review Proceedings
In this era of the America Invents Act, going before the US Patent and Trademark Office requires technically trained and experienced trial lawyers capable of managing complex cases, taking effective discovery, and presenting complicated subject matter in a clear and persuasive manner.
Combining the force of a litigation powerhouse with the finesse of a personalized, client-focused team, our USPTO group helps clients achieve all their objectives—from pursuing an inter partes or covered business method review as part of a larger litigation defense strategy, to defending an issued patent as part of a comprehensive portfolio management.
Our team, including more than 35 lawyers with technical degrees like engineering, computer science, physics, and the life sciences, has helmed rare and groundbreaking patent proceedings. These have included securing the first final decision in an inter partes review in which patent claims survived without being invalidated, and obtaining a rare PTAB order denying a petition for inter partes review in its entirety, successfully derailing an attempt to invalidate our client’s patent.
