PTAB Post Grant Proceedings Tactical Guide

PTAB Post Grant Proceedings: A Tactical Guide for Practitioners, is a definitive guide for patent holders and practitioners engaging in new trial proceedings under the America Invents Act (“AIA”). Visitors can view the content for PTAB Post Grant Proceedings: A Tactical Guide for Practitioners and request a personal copy of the guide online.

The guide provides an overview of post-grant tactics likely to prevail under AIA, explores likely trial and pre-trial results under evolving courtroom procedures (among them Inter Partes Review, the Transitional Program for Covered Business Method Patents, and Post-Grant Review) and provides statistical breakdowns based on all petitions made to PTAB under AIA this year. It also provides practical advice to those looking to move claims through the court, and to patent holders looking to defend their most vital intellectual property.

The study is published by Goodwin Procter’s Intellectual Property Litigation Practice, ranked by IP Law and Business as one of the nation’s most active. Goodwin’s 150 IP attorneys and scientists have worked extensively with clients to secure preliminary injunctions, declaratory and summary judgments, favorable results in Markman proceedings, advantageous settlements and appellate relief. Goodwin attorneys routinely work with clients to take cases from pre-suit investigations through discovery proceedings and trials.
