Post-Grant for Practitioners | 2022 Year in Review


The Patent Trial and Appeal Board in 2022 continues to have a significant impact on IP litigation and strategy. Petitioners remain busier than ever, with a total of 1,367 filings in FY 2022. This year saw the impact of newly confirmed USPTO Director Kathi Vidal, who took an active role in issuing guidance refining the Board's approach to several key issues affecting practitioners. The courts were also busy, with decisions touching on standing, serial petitions, abuse of process, and much more.
