Todd Walters, shareholder in the firm's Intellectual Property section, will speak on a panel titled "Case Study: Shaking up PTAB - Post SAS" at the IP Strategy: Boston conference.

The PTAB has acted swiftly, adjusting to SCOTUS’ SAS Institute Inc. V. IANCU decision – instituting a spate of short-term efforts to comply with the decision. However, a finalized set of processes still remains unclear. While IPR costs and time to trial are expected to increase, counsel are also facing a strategic rethink to the process. Will IPR dominance remain? Will the recent sovereign immunity ruling bring even greater complexity to the process? What should you focus on? How will the business be impacted?

This panel will explore:

  • State of the current IPR landscape:
    • PTAB today – What do we know? What should you plan for?
    • How should you prepare?
    • Choosing IPRs – Have considerations changed?
  • How to change or evolve your strategy?
  • Has the business case changed for IPRs?
    • Cost, Resource Allocation – Impact on the business
    • Fee hikes – What will their impact be?
  • Best practices in front of the USPTO
