The PTAB Bar Association will present a series of three webinars on the USPTO’s proposed sweeping rule changes for PTAB practice.
Fenwick litigation associate Jennifer Bush will join the first panel, Impact on Procedures – PTAB Proposed Rule Changes, to discuss the potential impact on logistics surrounding preparation of petitions, procedural denials of petitions, and settlement of PTAB disputes.
- Buying larger word limits – will this really help petitioners?
- Separate briefing on discretionary denials – real change, or merely an effective increase in word count for pre-institution briefing?
- Enforced filing of pre-institution settlement agreements – is this a change, or reinforcement of status quo?
