Post-Grant Proceedings

Overview


Post-grant review proceedings in the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) are one of the most significant changes brought by the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA). These proceedings include inter partes review (IPR), covered business method review (CBM) and post-grant review (PGR). Successfully asserting or defending a post-grant review proceeding requires understanding the unique nature of the proceedings, the voluminous procedures outlined in the USPTO regulations, and the litigation components of the proceedings.
