USPTO Post-Grant Proceedings
The America Invents Act (AIA) introduced new proceedings by which third-parties may challenge a patent: post-grant review, inter partes review, and covered business method proceedings. Long before the enactment of the AIA, Haley Guiliano’s practitioners represented clients in contested proceedings before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), including interferences and inter partes reexamination proceedings. Following enactment of the AIA, our team has continued to represent clients in the various contested proceedings, new and old, at the USPTO in a variety of technical spaces. Our team has the proven technical, legal and procedural expertise in representing clients before the USPTO, whether they are challenging a patent or protecting their own intellectual property.
How we can help:
- Represent clients — petitioners or patent owners — in post-grant review, inter partes review, and covered business method proceedings and appeals.
- Help clients stake their claim in interference and derivation proceedings.
- Help clients strengthen their intellectual property in ex parte re-examination and supplemental examination proceedings.
- Coordinate post-grant proceedings with clients’ worldwide patent prosecution and litigation strategies.
