Peter P. Chen

Covington & Burling LLP

Redwood Shores, CA, USA


Peter Chen is a partner in Covington’s Silicon Valley office and is co-chair of the firm’s PTAB practice.  Mr. Chen joined Covington in early 2017 and has represented technology and life sciences clients in IPRs, as petitioners and patent owners. Before Covington, Mr. Chen served as an Administrative Patent Judge (APJ) from 2013-2017 at the PTO’s West Coast Regional Office and presided on nearly 200 inter partes review and Covered Business Method review proceedings, many through Final Decision, involving a wide range of technologies.

During 2015-2017, Mr. Chen was a Lead APJ and as a member of PTAB’s management team, he assisted current Chief Judge David Ruschke and his two predecessors in formulating and executing PTAB policy involving AIA trial procedures and Board operations. He also supervised a team of APJs, and assisted the Regional Director in policy and operations matters for the USPTO’s West Coast Regional Office. Mr. Chen is among the only former Lead APJs in private practice, and provides clients with a uniquely valuable perspective from his experience in presiding over AIA trials and in devising PTAB policy.

Prior to his service at the PTAB, Mr. Chen was a first-chair intellectual property litigator and partner at three international law firms, and also served as general counsel and intellectual property counsel in-house, at startup and publicly traded technology companies in Silicon Valley. He has litigated over 75 patent cases, 25 trade secrets misappropriation cases, and numerous cases involving copyrights, trademarks, and unfair competition, in federal and state courts and the International Trade Commission, for high technology and life sciences companies.

Mr. Chen is a registered patent attorney and is a named co-inventor on two U.S. Patents Nos. 8,468,050 and 8,843,392.
