This spring, the USPTO has issued a wide range of Notices of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), touching virtually every aspect of practice before the USPTO. Fenwick litigation associate Jennifer Bush will join this panel to discuss the NPRM relating to:

  • Separate briefing on discretionary denials;
  • Parallel and serial petitions and 35 USC 325(d) considerations;
  • Enforced filing of settlement agreements pre-institution.
