BSKB is partnering with Managing IP to present two complimentary webinars on post grant proceedings. Partners Gerald Murphy, Jr. and Eugene Perez will explore the various stages of post grant proceedings and examine issues that petitioners and patent owners should keep in mind when entering into these proceedings. The first webinar, Pitfalls in the First Phase of Post Grant Proceedings, will be held on April 16, 2015 at 4pm EST and will focus on common mistakes made during the first phase of post grant proceedings, namely the filing of the Petition and up through the Institution Decision. Issues covered will include what to allege in the Petition, redundancy, the real party in interest requirement (including privity), joinder, estoppel and claim construction.
The second webinar, Pitfalls in Post Grant Trials, will be held on May 12, 2015 at 4pm EST and will explore the most common mistakes of the third party petitioner and patent owner during the second phase of post grant proceedings, namely all actions taken after the Institution Decision. Issues covered will include responding to the Institution Decision, Motion to Amend, replies, discovery, depositions, Oral Hearing and settlement, with an explanation of key decisions by the PTAB and the Federal Circuit.
