6 CLE hours
Learn the ins and outs of post-grant trial proceedings.

Join our expert faculty, including PTAB and District Court Judges, for an in-depth analysis of the USPTO’s post-grant patent trial (“AIA Trial”) proceedings.  AIA Trial proceedings continue to be pursued in record number, and the PTAB is now the busiest patent court in the United States. Moreover, the CAFC is now considering a substantial new workflow based on AIA Trial decisions. These CAFC decisions are not only evolving PTAB trial practices, but all aspects of patent enforcement and procurement. Stakeholders and the courts alike recognize the significant impact of these proceedings on litigation strategies and patent monetization efforts. The new monetization landscape demands the development of alternative case management strategies, requiring consideration of concurrent PTAB tactics and options. AIA Trial proceedings are currently used to resolve patentability challenges, reduce costly litigation proceedings, reduce damage exposure, mitigate possible injunctive relief, accelerate settlement, and foster predictability. The first obstacle to patent monetization is now an Article I court, with specialized procedures and expert judicial insight. Are you prepared?
