Post-Grant Proceedings


Fox’s patent attorneys routinely work with companies to help them identify their core technologies; track, search and monitor related applications and patents by competitors; and, if needed, can prepare a pre-issuance submission or initiate a post-grant proceeding to protect a company’s IP assets when the award of a patent to a third party is inappropriate.

Our patent prosecutors and patent litigators effectively resolve disputes before the PTAB, USPTO and federal, state and appellate courts and are primed to represent clients before the newly formed PTAB. Fox is one of a handful of law firms with experience handling inter partes reviews (IPRs) before the PTAB, including four such reviews covering medical devices.

We have represented clients in patent proceedings, including interferences, re-examination and reissuance, as well as at trial, in settlements and in arbitrations. Our attorneys possess a comprehensive understanding of the substantive law related to each type of proceeding. Fox’s combined experience in IP litigation and USPTO practice positions us well to handle post-grant and inter parties review procedures.
