The validity of a patent may be challenged before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) using post-grant review (PGR), inter partes review (IPR), and covered business method (CBM) proceedings. With decades of experience handling proceedings before the USPTO and a deep understanding of the underlying technologies, our PTAB trial team is uniquely qualified to challenge patents on behalf of petitioners and to protect patents on behalf of patent owners.
In handling PTAB trials, our team relies on technical proficiency and extensive experience in all aspects of patent law. Our team is well-versed in the law and procedures unique to PTAB trials and the interplay of such law and procedures with prior and parallel proceedings before the USPTO, courts, and other tribunals. Our team is also sensitive to issues unique to certain technologies in practice before the PTAB.
As in all our work, we focus on obtaining a deep understanding of our clients’ business objectives in developing and updating strategies for handling PTAB trials. Focusing on obtaining this understanding allows us to operate under budget constraints and consider alternative, cost-effective strategies – in the context of a particular PTAB trial, parallel proceedings, or negotiations with adversaries – to achieve the most favorable possible outcomes for our clients.
