For decades, we have advocated for clients in post-grant proceedings before the USPTO, including the second-ever inter partes review argued before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). Our experience spans appeals, reissues, reexaminations, interferences, inter partes reviews, and covered business method reviews.
Serving clients from offices in major technology hubs around the world—including an office near the USPTO in Washington, DC—our lawyers possess technical knowledge and dispute experience. We routinely litigate complex patent matters, including taking and defending depositions and arguing before courts and administrative panels. Notably, we have had a number of inter partes reviews and covered business method reviews dismissed by the PTAB.
Our patent lawyers and agents have technical or scientific backgrounds, with many holding advanced degrees (including PhDs). A number of our lawyers also bring relevant technical experience from roles prior to their law careers and as former USTPO examiners.
Our technical experience crosses many disciplines, including electrical, computer hardware and software, business methods (including ecommerce and financial services), mechanical, life sciences (biotechnology and pharmaceuticals), specialty chemicals, medical devices, diagnostics, semiconductors, clean technology, financial technology, and consumer products.
