About Our Post-Grant Proceedings Practice
The Post-Grant Proceedings practice at Fenwick & West is built with seasoned patent practitioners and litigators with deep experience in patent disputes at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, U.S. federal courts and the International Trade Commission (ITC). The practice covers all aspects of dealing with administrative patent disputes, including trials at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, post-grant reviews, inter partes reviews, ex parte reexaminations, derivation proceedings, covered business method reviews, and also covers cross-over patent litigation strategy. The practice members leverage their years of extensive experience in patent reexamination proceedings and parallel litigation to develop cost-effective, business-focused strategies for dealing with patent disputes under the new PTO rules mandated by the America Invents Act (AIA) and the evolving IP management landscape.
The firm recently launched an interactive PTAB Database that decodes post-grant decisions reached by the USPTO’s Patent Trial and Appeals Board, to help users analyze the ever-evolving post-grant space.
