…possesses a leading IPR and PTAB practice - Chambers USA, 2022

Our Post-Grant Proceedings Practice Group regularly represents both petitioners, in challenging patent validity, and patent owners, in defending patents, in matters before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (patent office). PTAB proceedings are administered in an expedited manner and serve as an alternative or complement to a U.S. district court or U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) proceeding where patent validity is at issue.

Our substantial district court and ITC patent trial experience, paired with our technical knowledge across a broad range of technologies and experience handling post-grant matters at the PTAB, yields teams with the skills and strategic thinking necessary to successfully navigate inter partes review (IPR), post-grant review (PGR) and covered business method (CBM) review proceedings at the PTAB.

Our comprehensive appellate experience at the Federal Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court further facilitates our ability to effectively handle the unique procedural and substantive aspects of PTAB trials and related Federal Circuit appeals.

An in-depth knowledge of the laws, rules, and decisions (from both the PTAB and the Federal Circuit) governing PTAB proceedings, combined with our substantial patent trial experience, allows our attorneys to offer unparalleled counseling to our clients who are contemplating initiating a PTAB proceeding or who have found themselves facing a PTAB trial as patent owners.
