With attorneys having strong backgrounds in patent prosecution and patent litigation, our patent office post-grant proceedings team works collaboratively to advise clients on the best strategies to navigate through patent office proceedings. Our attorneys provide clients with unmatched prosecution and litigation skills and experience practicing before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), along with the experience and knowledge to address inter partes review, post grant review, covered business method review, and ex parte reexamination.
Drawing on both our patent prosecution and patent litigation practices, each among the largest in the country, our team develops strategies that can result in stayed litigation pending resolution of inter partes reviews and reexaminations, decreased damage exposure, improved claim construction and non-infringement positions, and improved settlement and dispute resolution prospects for our clients. We also counsel clients on the offensive use of inter partes review and other patent office procedures to eliminate infringement risks and secure freedom to operate for their product lines. Additionally, the team is often called upon to defend the validity of patents, whether or not prosecuted by Quarles & Brady, that have been ensnarled in high-profile, high-stakes patent litigation.
As leaders in this expanding area, the Quarles & Brady team has the credentials, technical knowledge, experience, and judgment to guide clients through patent office post-grant proceedings and related litigation.
