Webinar - Online e-Learning SeminarStafford Legal Webinar on PTAB Practice

Next week, the Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB) will begin to accept petitions for the post grant patent validity trials of the America Invents Act (AIA). For those needing a refresher, or crash course in the new proceedings, next Tuesday September 18th Stafford legal will host a 90-minute webinar entitled New USPTO Rules for Post Grant Proceedings (Stafford Legal).

As part of the presentation, my colleagues and I will provide guidance for counsel to IP owners on changes to implement for inter partes review proceedings, post-grant review proceedings, and the transitional program for covered business method patents. We will also discuss strategic considerations for post-grant practice.
