Post-Grant for Practitioners: Post-Grant Review (PGR) Proceedings are Gaining Momentum

Recent statistics from the USPTO show that still more post-grant review (PGR) proceedings have been filed. As more patents issue under the America Invents Act (AIA), are PGR proceedings a favorable option as a counterpart to inter partes review?

Post-grant review is available immediately after patent issuance and it is designed to allow proceedings to conclude quickly. Fish & Richardson attorneys Joshua Griswold and Dan Smith discussed the requirements for PGR and estoppel, and took a closer look at how practitioners are using PGR proceedings as part of their patent strategy. They also took a closer look at recent PGR filings and the first PGR decisions from the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, providing best practices and strategic considerations.
