PTAB Monitor: Developments in Inter Partes Review Practice

May 2016

Prepared by members of Kaye Scholer’s nationally recognized patent litigation group, PTAB Monitor: Developments in Inter Partes Review Practice provides parties and practitioners with timely insights for successfully invalidating or defending a patent before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).

The report features the following four articles for effectively navigating the IPR process and other AIA proceedings:

  • The Federal Circuit Adopts a Redundancy Exception to Estoppel Following Inter Partes Review
  • Winning It on Appeal: How to Avoid Remand and Reverse the Board’s Validity Determination at the Federal Circuit
  • Parallel Track Proceedings: Determining Whether to Stay Litigation
  • Making the Most of Limited Discovery Before the PTAB

Kaye Scholer has been at the leading edge of contested Patent Office post-grant practice since its inception. In 2012, we filed four of the very first IPRs challenging the validity of four patents. In early November 2015, we secured a first-in-kind decision in the Federal Circuit, reversing the Board’s finding that certain claims were not unpatentable. On a continual basis, we are actively involved on behalf of our clients with PTAB proceedings, as well as in parallel cases at the district court level.
