    Event Synopsis:
    One of the most significant and notable changes brought by the American Invents Act (AIA) are the post-grant proceedings. These proceedings include Post-Grant Review (PGR); Inter Partes Review (IPR) and the Transitional Covered Business Method procedure (CBM). To successfully assert or defend a post-grant proceeding, every patent lawyer must understand the unique nature of the proceedings, the extensive procedures outlined in the USPTO rules and the litigation aspects of the proceedings.

    The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders to provide the audience with practice tips for post-grant validity proceedings. In a two-hour LIVE Webcast, they will discuss a range of topics including:
    An Overview of Post-Grant Proceedings
    Current Statistics and Trends
    USPTO Rules for AIA Post-Grant Proceedings
    Estoppel Challenges
    Recent Filings and Decisions
    Strategic Filing Considerations
