How to Ensure a Smooth Sail at the PTAB: Best Practices for Petitioners & Patent Owners
PTAB trial proceedings are a significant hurdle to patent enforcement and monetization. The preliminary stage of a trial is perhaps the most critical period for patent owners. And discretionary denials and changes to patent owner testimonial evidence have greatly impacted the strategy for effective preliminary responses. If the patent owner is unable to avoid institution, the trial concludes in a final written decision. Potential pitfalls face parties here too, and an effective trial strategy requires briefing matters of significance, not wasting money on distractions, and a comprehensive understanding of direct testimony, cross-examination, briefing and motion practices, and inter partes and ex parte amendment procedures. The panel will discuss these complex proceedings and their relationship to patent enforcement.
