Todd Walters and David Leibovitch will present "Strategies for Challenging and Defending Patents in the US and Europe" at the European American Chamber of Commerce on February 12.

Their presentation will discuss:

  • How do Patent Trial & Appeal Board proceedings at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office differ from District Court and ITC Proceedings? How do such proceedings compare to oppositions at the EPO?
  • Is the pendulum swinging back in favor of Patent Owners? The impact of the US Supreme Court's SAS decision and recent procedural changes favoring Patent Owners
  • How to Manage Parallel Proceedings
  • Considerations for strengthening your patent portfolio to resist AIA Proceedings and opposition challenges
