Post-Grant for Practitioners – Post-Grant Appeals: Updates and Reflections

The Federal Circuit has been busy in 2019. As of July 31 of the current fiscal year, the court docketed 570 appeals from the USPTO, an increase of 13.8% over the same period in 2018. Cases originating from the USPTO continue to make up the largest share of the court’s caseload, accounting for almost half of its docketed cases this year. The court has also recently issued several opinions that directly affect post-grant practice at the PTAB.

In this Post-Grant for Practitioners webinar, Fish Senior Principal John Dragseth and Associate Nitika Gupta Fiorella discuss recent PTAB cases from the Federal Circuit on hot-button issues and their impact on post-grant practice, including:

  • Standing
  • Estoppel
  • Sovereign immunity
  • Pre-AIA constitutionality

This webinar also includes a discussion of recent statistics and trends, procedural tips, and pending cases at both the Federal Circuit and Supreme Court.
