You can register for free here.
With the passage of the America Invents Act in 2011, the number of filings for USPTO post-grant patent trials has dramatically increased. Whether the PTAB institutes an inter partes review, a post-grant review, or a post-grant validity review of qualified business method patents, each trial has procedural pitfalls with considerable strategic considerations during the Second Phase of the trial (from the institution decision to the final written decision by the Board).
This webinar will explore the most common mistakes the third party petitioner or patent owner during the 2nd Phase, with an explanation of key decisions by the PTAB (including those posted on the USPTO microsite) as well as the Federal Circuit. The focus will be on discovery, the patent owner motion to amend, oral hearing, and estoppel.
The speakers are:
•Eugene Perez, partner, Birch Stewart Kolasch Birch LLP
•Gerald Murphy, partner, Birch Stewart Kolasch Birch LLP
•Michael Loney, Americas editor, Managing IP (moderator)
With post-grant trials becoming increasingly popular, having an in-depth understanding of the pitfalls and challenges is essential for sustaining a strong presence in the market place. The live audience will be able to ask questions of the speakers during the webinar, which will be in English and will last one hour.
