Post-Grant for Practitioners | 2020 Post-Grant Appeals

This webinar has ended.


As of August 31 of the current fiscal year, the Federal Circuit has docketed 473 appeals from the USPTO — a 28% decline from the same period in 2019. But even with this drop, the court has nonetheless issued a number of important decisions this year.

Join Fish attorneys John Dragseth and Nitika Gupta Fiorella on Thursday, November 5, for a review of recent post-grant appeals. The panelists will discuss hot-button cases about the substance and process of PTAB appeals at the Federal Circuit - and provide practical insights for your day-to-day practice.

Topics are expected to include:

  • What should practitioners do after Arthrex declared PTAB judges unconstitutional and then made them constitutional (maybe)?
  • What is the latest on standing to appeal for IPR petitioners?
  • How do various estoppels coming into and out of post-grant proceedings affect strategy and tactics in the USPTO and district court?
  • After Thryv v. Click-to-Call, can anyone challenge anything the PTAB does before a final written decision?
