Post-Grant for Practitioners | SAS and Oil States: One Year Later

This webinar has ended.


In April of 2018, the Supreme Court issued its much-anticipated decisions in Oil States Energy Services, LLC v. Greene’s Energy Group, LLCandSAS Institute, Inc. v. Iancu, both of which have hadsignificant impacts on post-grant practice. InOil States, the Court upheld the constitutionality of IPR proceedings under the public rights doctrine. InSAS Institute, the Court ended the PTAB’s practice of partial institution, holding that it must institute IPR proceedings either on all of the challenged claims or none of the challenged claims.

At the one year anniversary of these decisions, Fish Principals Dorothy Whelan, Karl Renner, and Rob Courtney look back over the previous year and discuss how these cases have changed post-grant practice. Topics of discussion include:

  • The implications ofSASfor post-grant estoppel (and beyond)
  • Lingering questions left unanswered by the “narrow” holding ofOil States
  • Strategic considerations for petitioners and patent owners
