March Webinar to Explore the Evolution of PTAB Trial Practices

This month’s edition of the free webinar series will be held on Wednesday, March 28th @ 2PM (EST). The March Webinar is entitled: Evolution of PTAB Trial Practices.

Program Description: The Patent Trial & Appeal Board (PTAB) has evolved significantly since first opening its doors in 2012 to accept AIA Trial petitions. Since that time trial institution rates have continuously tracked downward from 85+% to today’s 50-60% range. Likewise, it is now  more common for the PTAB to reverse course at the time of Final Written Decision (FWD). Trial strategies have also changed in response to the recent liberalization of the “appeal bar,” shifting of amendment burdens, and crackdown on multiple petition strategies. Looking forward into 2018, even more significant changes are on the horizon.

New strategies and tactics must be developed to keep pace with the constant recalibration of the nation’s busiest patent court.  Please join Ropes & Gray’s PTAB Chair Scott McKeown and litigation partner Jim Davis for the upcoming webinar discussing PTAB changes & emerging trends impacting 2018 patent disputes.

The formal portion of the webinar will begin at 2PM Eastern and will last for approximately 50-60 minutes. After the presentation there will be a Q&A period.
