Post Grant Proceedings

The America Invents Act (AIA) of 2011 formed the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) and replaced inter partes patent reexamination with two inter partes dispute proceedings: inter partes review (IPR) and post-grant review (PGR), while adding a Covered Business Method Review proceeding.

Kilpatrick Townsend’s Post Grant team draws on its patent prosecution and patent litigation practices that are each among the largest in the world. These practices provide an unmatched combination of deep experience and skill in both patent offices and courts with comprehensive science and engineering academic credentials and industrial experience.

Our Post Grant team is currently representing petitioners and patent owners in more than 50 of these new AIA Inter Partes Disputes proceedings, and has represented patent owners and challengers in more than 100 U.S. patent reexamination proceedings. We are also well-experienced with European opposition proceedings that are quite similar to the new U.S. proceedings. Our litigators conduct focused and efficient discovery and are masters of the courtroom, coupling penetrating cross examinations with winning oral arguments, skills and experience that are essential in the new IPR and PGR proceedings.
