Early Registration Discount Deadline, Friday, May 5, 2017


This CLE webinar will provide guidance to counsel on trends in Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) trial practice, focusing on motion opportunities, amendment, concurrent reissue/reexamination, evidentiary opportunities, petition missteps and much more.

Description

The PTAB has become the forum of choice for disputing U.S. patent validity. Since its inception, parties have turned to the PTAB for its unprecedented speed, predictability and expert insight. A thorough understanding of this evolving landscape includes not only mastering the unique rules of this forum (including proposed changes), but also an ever changing body of Board informative decisions, and growing CAFC precedent.

Counsel must understand strategic leverage points presented by these proceedings to maximize both patent monetization potential and settlement opportunity.

Listen as our authoritative panel of patent attorneys examines the evolving PTAB trial practice, focusing on discovery, joinder and motions to amend. The panel will discuss guidance issued by the PTAB as well as what can be learned from PTAB decisions over the past year. The panel will offer best practices for strategic trial practice before the PTAB.

Customer Reviews

I liked that Strafford's webinar was not too long - 1 1/2 hours is a good compromise.

James Dawson

Koppel, Patrick, Heybl & Dawson

All of the speakers had a wide range of knowledge.

Kimberly Hayes

Great information regarding recent case law.

Nicole Ressue

Santangelo Law Offices

Convenient and well-organized.  Well-run program.

Michael V. Kruljac

IMERYS

The seminar wasn't presented like a law school class full of hypotheticals and ideal responses. The presenters discussed actual scenarios that we may face and the most practical way to address them.
