Post Grant for Practitioners: 2022 Mid-Year Review

This webinar has ended.


In April 2022, Kathi Vidal assumed office as Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, ushering in a new era for the agency. With new guidance concerning Fintiv denials, an updated interim process for Director review, and the introduction of major reform legislation, 2022 is shaping up to be a busy year in the post-grant world. If you have missed some of these developments, now is a good time to catch up.

On Thursday, August 11, Fish attorneys Casey Kraning and Nick Stephens will provide a mid-year review of developments in post-grant practice. Our hosts will discuss:

  • The USPTO's updated Fintiv guidance
  • The USPTO's updated applicant admitted prior art guidance
  • Proposed PTAB legislation
  • Clarification of the scope of IPR estoppel
  • An overview of cases selected for Director review
