Foley & Lardner LLP

Defense of Inter Partes and Ex Parte Reexaminations on LED Technologies

Represented a manufacturer of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and laser diodes in two inter partes and two ex parte reexaminations of design patents on LED technologies. Foley led the proceedings where the reexaminations were filed by a competitor against the client in parallel with infringement litigation involving the same patents. Therefore the proceedings required careful coordination with the litigation team. All four reexaminations concluded favorably for the client with a finding of patentability as to all claims.
