Under new proceedings, the validity of an issued patent can be challenged before the new Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). Many litigants are choosing to stay their cases and challenge patent validity with the PTAB, as the burden of proof is lower, and the judges are technical experts.

Join experienced practitioners discussing these proceedings and what they have learned.

Participants may attend the program in person at Ballard Spahr’s Philadelphia office or via webinar.
