Posturing IPRs For Early Settlement
Thursday, March 24th at 10:30 am United States (GMT -07:00) Pacific
Speaker: Timothy Bianchi, Principal of Schwegman Lundberg & Woessner, P.A.
Join Patexia and Timothy E. Bianchi, principal of Schwegman Lundberg & Woessner, P.A., for a discussion of how to use Inter Partes Reviews (IPR) to position yourself for an advantageous settlement.
A petitioner has to carefully craft IPR petitions to obtain institution of trial with the PTAB. But another way to “win” an IPR is to posture the petition filing to encourage early settlement with the patent owner. Learn how IPR petitions are perceived by both the petitioner and patent owner at various stages of an IPR and strategies that maximize early settlement potential.
The webinar will last 30 minutes.
This webinar is the final presentation in Patexia's Spotlight on PTAB series.
Suggested Audience: IP practitioners working with law firms and operating companies, Companies considering using an AIA review to invalidate a patent asserted against them, licensing professionals interested in validity issues
