Post-Grant for Practitioners: 2016 Year in Review

In 2016, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) was again a forum of choice for challenging patentability of claims. In fact, it currently tops the Eastern District of Texas as the #1 venue for patent disputes in 2016. Fish Principals and Post-Grant Practice Co-Chairs, Karl Renner and Dorothy Whelan, took a look back on significant developments from the past year. The discussion included:

  • PTAB statistics and trends
  • New rules for post-grant proceedings
  • Developments in biopharma IPRs
  • Decisions and case law developments at the PTAB and Federal Circuit
  • The Shaw decision and estoppel
  • What to watch for in 2017
