Upcoming PTAB Related CLE

Even before last week’s Supreme Court opinions in Oil States and SAS, the month of May was already jam packed with PTAB-related CLE.

This week, there are a number of shorter, focused webinars, as well as the MIP PTAB forum in New York. Mid-May brings PLI’s flagship PTAB Trials 2018.

First, don’t forget the PTAB itself is holding a “Chat with the Chief” webinar today from noon to 1 pm ET to discuss about the Supreme Court’s decisions on Oil States and SAS. Chief Judge David Ruschke will discuss the decisions, their impacts on AIA trial proceedings, and answer questions. The webinar is free and open to everyone to attend (here)

On Tuesday May 1st, @ 1-2PM EST is a special edition of the PatentsPostGrant.com free webinar series entitled: Supreme Court Debrief: Oil States & SAS Institute: The Aftermath. This webinar will be focused on changing PTAB and litigation strategies in light of Oil States and SAS, including those changes discussed by the chief in today’s Chat with the Chief webinar. On this program I will be joined by Ropes & Gray’s Appellate and Supreme Court practice chair Douglas Hallward-Driemeier, as well as patent litigator Matthew Rizzolo. Register (here)

Wednesday May 2nd @ 1-2PM EST brings the regularly scheduled PatentsPostGrant.com free webinar entitled: Bio/Pharma Deals & Dispute Resolution in the PTAB Era. For this webinar I am joined by Ropes & Gray’s Life Sciences IP Litigation Chair Filko Prugo, and IP Transactions Partner Melissa Rones. Register (here)

On Thursday May 3rd in NYC, is Managing Intellectual Property’s PTAB Forum. This full-day program will move to Palo Alto on May 8th.

Last but not least is PLI’s PTAB Trials 2018 on May 15th in San Francisco (also available by webcast). The PLI program is the longest running and most widely attended PTAB-related CLE in existence. This year brings special segments dedicated to licensing and monetization strategies in Silicon Valley, as well as PTAB-centric prosecution practices. I am pleased to continue to chair this program alongside Robert Greene Sterne of the Sterne Kessler firm. (The New York stop of this program will be September 21st)

Hope you are able to attend one of these many upcoming programs.
