How My Firm can help

Post-grant proceedings, for example inter partes reviews, are conducted in the Patent Office before a panel of three patent judges with technical/scientific backgrounds (the PTAB).  Discovery (including depositions) is limited. Appeals from the PTAB are to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
