Sughrue Partners Bring Insights on AIA to FBA Annual Meeting


Raja Saliba and John Scherling will lead a discussion on Patent Litigation Under the AIA and Strategic Use of the New USPTO Post Grant Opposition proceeding. 

On September 16, 2012, some of the most radical changes in the last 60 years in U.S. patent law take effect.  The post-grant proceedings before the USPTO under the 2011 America Invents Act will provide new, complex, and rapid procedures for challenging patents before an administrative forum that bypass the district courts and significantly alter the strategic landscape of patent litigation.  Whether in-house or outside counsel, patentee or putative infringer, understanding the implications of these new post-grant proceedings is essential in today's litigation environment.
