Post-Grant Proceedings Litigation Alternative
Post-grant proceedings provide faster, more cost-effective ways to challenge issued patents before initiating or in parallel with court proceedings. Since the enactment of the America Invents Act, our registered patent attorneys and litigators have successfully handled hundreds of post-grant proceedings — inter partes reviews (IPR), covered business method (CBM) reviews, post-grant reviews (PGR), ex parte reexaminations, and supplemental examinations — before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) for both petitioners challenging patents and patent owners. Our Post-Grant Proceedings Team draws from our more than 200 registered patent attorneys with specializations across all technologies, and includes patent litigators with extensive experience in post-grant and federal court proceedings. Our success on both sides of the table has earned us national recognition as a top law firm in total IPR institutions for petitioners and as a top firm in blocking institutions of IPRs for patent owners. We also handle similar European opposition proceedings, IPRs involving patents concurrently in litigation, and cross-over patent litigation strategy.

While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
DO NOT CONVEY TO US ANY INFORMATION YOU REGARD AS CONFIDENTIAL UNTIL A FORMAL CLIENT-ATTORNEY RELATIONSHIP HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED.
If you do convey information, you recognize that we may review and disclose the information, and you agree that even if you regard the information as highly confidential and even if it is transmitted in a good faith effort to retain us, such a review does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could be used against you.
