Post Grant Practice

The Post-Grant Proceedings practice at Maier & Maier, PLLC assists companies with post grant challenges to patents in the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). As a hybrid between PTO proceedings and federal court litigation, Inter Partes Reviews (IPRs) require expertise across the patent spectrum. Our experienced patent practitioners and litigators have cutting edge experience in patent disputes at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, U.S. federal courts, and the International Trade Commission (ITC) enforcing and protecting our clients’ intellectual property assets. The Post-Grant practice covers all aspects of dealing with administrative patent disputes, including trials at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, post-grant reviews, inter partes reviews, ex parte reexaminations, derivation proceedings, and covered business method reviews, as well as cross-over patent litigation strategy. Our practitioners have years of patent prosecution and patent reexamination experience in proceedings having parallel litigation and have learned to develop cost-effective, business-centered strategies for tactfully handling patent disputes under the new PTO rules mandated by the America Invents Act (AIA).
