On June 12th, 13th and 15th, 2018, Sughrue Mion and Japan-based client NGB Corporation jointly hosted a series of seminars focusing on one of the highest trending topics in the world of Intellectual Property, Inter-Partes Review (IPR). Sughrue partners John Bird, Mark Boland, Steven Gruskin, Fadi Kiblawi, Jay Lytle, Bill Mandir, John Rabena and Keiko Takagi, and associate Roman Rachuba, conducted captivating lectures that provided basic knowledge of IPRs and reviewed relevant ground breaking cases, such as SAS Institute, Inc. v.

John Bird and Jay Lytle, co-authors of The Essential Case Law Guide to PTAB Trials, published by the ABA, were excited to use their highly praised IPR treatise as an educational resource throughout the lectures. Held in Nagoya, Osaka, and Tokyo, respectively, each event was met with an eager audience who engaged in deep discussions about IPR practice and strategy with our attorney speakers.
