Post-grant patent challenges are commonplace in the wake of the America Invents Act (AIA), making it more cost-effective and easier for patent litigants to resolve validity disputes in front of a panel of technical judges well versed in patent law. Our post-grant group was on the front lines when that change took place, filing some of the first ever AIA challenges.
We staff matters with litigation and prosecution counsel, uniquely positioning our group’s prowess and understanding. Today, our post-grant practice is adept at challenging and defending patents not only before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board but on a global basis. We are built to leverage the benefits of a combined prosecution-based and litigation-based practice, providing substantial cost savings along with a focus on developing litigation and post-grant strategies that serve our clients’ business strategies.
