PTAB Practice: Recent Developments in Estoppel

There are a wide range of estoppel issues that may be triggered under the America Invents Act (AIA) as a result of proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).  These estoppel issues complicate decision making in pursuing parallel proceedings at the PTAB and in district court.

This 60-minute webinar will review estoppel provisions in the AIA, discuss recent developments in the law related to estoppel, and discuss some of the practical implications of the caselaw.

Tom Bejin of Bejin Bieneman PLC and Eileen M. Herlihy of Leber IP Law will present.
