Post Grant Proceedings
Smart ideas need shatterproof protection
Our intellectual property attorneys are experienced in all aspects of patent practice, including a variety of post grant proceedings. These proceedings, many of which were created by the America Invents Act, allow parties to challenge a patent’s validity before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board – instead of a lay jury – at costs substantially lower than those traditionally associated with patent infringement or invalidity actions filed at the district court level.
Tucker Ellis has a team of trial attorneys and patent attorneys specifically focused on post grant proceedings. We provide valuable counsel to clients in selecting the most appropriate proceeding to meet their objectives and in defending their patents.
