Webinar: Strategies and Considerations for IPR Petitioners Working with Other Interested Parties
03 June 2020WebinarPast Event
1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. EDT
Recent decisions by both the U.S. Patent Office Patent Trial and Appeal Board and Federal Courts are significantly affecting the landscape for Inter Partes Review and other post-grant proceeding petitions. These include Court decisions affecting the effective level of the PTAB’s control over Institution Decisions. These recent trends make strategic planning critical in the dynamic between customers and suppliers/service providers faced with infringement suits and threats. Early missteps in the IPR petition process can hinder or even doom success at the later stages.
Join Foley & Lardner LLP for a webinar discussing how recent PTAB and Federal Court decisions may affect the strategies used for Inter Partes Review and other post-grant proceeding petitions when other interested parties are involved. Such considerations arise, for example, in the context of customer/client-supplier/service provider relationships, and when another party has already filed an IPR petition on the same patent.
