Patent Trial & Appeal Board

As the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) becomes an increasingly popular venue for resolving patent validity disputes, having experienced counsel familiar with the PTAB’s intricacies is essential. Leveraging decades of USPTO and federal court trial experience, Goodwin’s more than 75 registered patent attorneys and agents have pioneered cutting-edge and cost-effective approaches to achieve success in all three types of America Invents Act (AIA) post-grant proceedings: inter partes review (IPR), covered business method review (CBM), and post grant review (PGR).

Goodwin is regularly recognized among the top PTAB firms by DocketNavigator and Managing IP. Our team enjoys a track record of successfully representing both petitioners and patent owners before the PTAB, whether as part of an overall strategy to invalidate patents that stand as barriers to market entry or protect valuable patents when challenged. Goodwin’s unparalleled strategic perspective on PTAB proceedings has also been brought to bear in the most important Federal Circuit and Supreme Court appeals that will define the landscape of PTAB litigation for years to come.
