The firm’s PTAB Trial Team is specially equipped to advocate our client’s interests in defense of a patent, or as challenger to a patent, in post-grant proceedings.

There are several accelerated and low-cost alternatives to federal court litigation for challenging patent validity at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). These post-grant proceedings include Inter Partes Review (IPR), Post-Grant Review (PGR), Derivation Proceedings, and The Transitional Program for Covered Business Methods (CBM), all of which are litigated before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) of the USPTO.

Our PTAB Trial Team is expert at navigating post-grant proceedings, as well as in developing critical tactical objectives prior to institution of post-grant proceedings. We are skilled not only in the post-grant processes, but also in identifying litigation options and risks, and evaluating potential outcomes. In addition, we are adept at the skillful handling of settlement and licensing negotiations that often result from the institution of post-grant proceedings.
