Andrew Cheslock, Counsel in the firm's Intellectual Property section, will present a webinar, "Claim Construction Standards and SAS in Post-Grant Trials: Trends, Developments and What Lies Ahead," hosted by The Knowledge Group.
The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) is drastically shifting to a new landscape with post-grant trial changes. Aiming to have an accurate and consistent patent validity, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) changed from employing broadest reasonable interpretation (BRI) standard to Phillips claim construction approach, which applies to inter partes review (IPR), post-grant review (PGR), and covered business method review (CBM) proceedings. Moreover, the U.S. Supreme Court, through its SAS Institute Inc. v. Iancu ruling, has ended the PTAB’s practice of allowing a patent challenge’s partial institution under the America Invents Act.
With these notable developments, both patent owners and petitioners must review their pre-existing strategies to ensure compliance with the new standards.
Join a panel of key thought leaders and litigators assembled by The Knowledge Group as they bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of claim construction standards in post-grant trials. Speakers will provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the changes’ implications in the future and will offer practical tips in bringing out the best in these cases in a rapidly evolving legal climate.
