Medical Device IPR at the PTAB, CAFC, and the Supreme Court
Please join us on January 31, 2018 for Medical Device IPR at the PTAB, CAFC, and the Supreme Court, the next installment of our monthly series of webinars directed to issues and developments in the law that affect the medical device industry. These free and informative presentations by Covington lawyers will be held once a month at 8 am PT/11 am ET/3 pm GMT. Each webinar will be approximately one hour in length.
Increasingly, companies are exploring litigation options at the Patent & Trademark Office (PTO) as a faster and less expensive alternative to federal court resolution. Our presenters will discuss developments at the PTO, CAFC], and Supreme Court that every patent holder or potential target thereof needs to know.
The webinar will be led by Peter Chen and Scott Kamholz, both former Administrative Patent Judges (APJ) at the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).
