PTAB and District Court Strategies: Navigating Competing Forums

Asia-based companies have broad experience as patent owners, plaintiffs, and defendants in the United States. Two prominent forums for litigation are U.S. district courts, hearing traditional litigation cases, and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), a specialized forum to address the validity of a patent. Both are widely used, but often involve competing interests for both plaintiff patent owners and defendants. Please join us for a discussion by practitioners who practice in both forums to consider strategies, procedures, and competing interests that are taking center stage in these forums.

Topics to be discussed include:

Balancing claim construction positions between different forums 

  • Balancing claim construction position between different forums

  • Recent developments in discretionary denials at the PTAB

  • Popular district court forums and how they affect PTAB strategies

The webinar will include a discussion of current hot topics, followed by a period to answer participant questions. We encourage participants to submit questions in advance.

This is the fourth of the four-part Finnegan Asia Litigation Webinar series.
