Karl Renner(Principal) was recently quoted in Law360 article, "Once A Mystery, PTAB Remands Start To Take Shape" on February 9, 2017.

No Rulebook

W. Karl Renner, co-chair of the post-grant practice group at Fish & Richardson PC, said the absence of rules governing remands was recognized relatively early on, but it was thought that some degree of flexibility could be beneficial.

"The flexibility [has] afforded the presiding panel in the PTAB the ability to assess cases one by one and react to them and their special circumstances," he said.


Fish & Richardson's Renner is among those who have taken it a step further, thinking about these issues even when at the PTAB the first time around.
