One of the most significant and notable changes brought by the American Invents Act (AIA) are the post-grant proceedings. These proceedings include Post-Grant Review (PGR); Inter Partes Review (IPR) and the Transitional Covered Business Method procedure (CBM). To successfully assert or defend a post-grant proceeding, every patent lawyer must understand the unique nature of the proceedings, the extensive procedures outlined in the USPTO rules and the litigation aspects of the proceedings.

On Tuesday, February 14, 3:00 PM-4:00 PM, Buchanan Counsel Jonathan Bowser and Vivek Ganti of Hill, Kertscher & Wharton will provide practical tips and strategies for post-grant validity proceedings during a webinar hosted by The Knowledge Group. They will discuss:

  • Effectively Structuring Petitions for Review
  • New Developments in AIA Trials
  • Tools for Patent Owners to Counter Petitions
  • Meeting the PTAB’s Evidentiary Requirements
  • Changing Strategies During a Trial
  • Emerging Trends in Estoppel From AIA Trials
