Strategies for Litigating Patents Concurrently in the District Court and PTAB [00:59:49]

Post-grant proceedings in the U.S. Patent Office continue to be a strategy for parties against whom a patent has been asserted and the path for initiating and defending such proceedings has become clearer. A parallel Patent Office proceeding is often a basis for seeking a stay of the more costly district court proceeding and/or used to bring the patentee to the bargaining table. Recent statistics reflect the continued popularity of filing of inter partes review (IPR) and covered business method review (CBM) proceedings following AIA, though the rates of success are trending downward. This session will explore best practices on complex issues such as content of Patent Owner Responses, joinder and consolidation, Motions to Amend, requests for rehearing, and remand proceedings following an appeal. In addition, the session will cover also address the effects of any such post-grant proceedings on parallel litigation, including stays, as well as the potential effects on collateral estoppel, claim construction positions, willfulness charges, inequitable conduct claims, and on damages and intervening rights will be addressed.
