    About Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC
    White & Case helps clients navigate the antitrust issues presented by the assertion of patent rights and represents both plaintiffs and defendants in such matters. We know the issues at the intersection of antitrust and intellectual property law, and our teams are staffed to include both antitrust and IP lawyers who collaborate across disciplines. These trial-ready interdisciplinary teams collaborate seamlessly, handling disputes and resolving challenges for our clients. We excel at taking the complex and making it simpler and understandable for judge and jury.

    Both patent cases and antitrust cases including patent assertion typically involve highly complex issues ? both legal and technology issues. White & Case has an unprecedented track record of trial victories in complex antitrust cases. Our philosophy is that defendants too often settle these cases by agreeing to pay exorbitant settlements. While our past successes and trial-oriented preparations often allow us to achieve favorable settlements for our clients, we begin preparing for trial from day one and do not hesitate to take cases to the mat when necessary.

    Event Synopsis:
    The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) is drastically shifting to a new landscape with post-grant trial changes. Aiming to have an accurate and consistent patent validity, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) changed from employing broadest reasonable interpretation (BRI) standard to Phillips claim construction approach, which applies to inter partes review (IPR), post-grant review (PGR), and covered business method review (CBM) proceedings. Moreover, the U.S. Supreme Court, through its SAS Institute Inc. v. Iancu ruling, has ended the PTAB’s practice of allowing a patent challenge’s partial institution under the America Invents Act.

    With these notable developments, both patent owners and petitioners must review their pre-existing strategies to ensure compliance with the new standards.

    Join a panel of key thought leaders and litigators assembled by The Knowledge Group as they bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of claim construction standards in post-grant trials. Speakers will provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the changes’ implications in the future and will offer practical tips in bringing out the best in these cases in a rapidly evolving legal climate.
