Now approaching the fourth anniversary of the inter partes review process (which became effective September 2012), it’s a good time to take stock of the most effective and cost-efficient ways to use these proceedings.  This 90-minute, accredited CLE seminar provides the latest IPR developments as viewed from the lens of an experienced Administrative Patent Judge, Facebook’s in-house manager of IPR petitions, a leading commentator on the IPR metrics, and outside practitioners who have successfully represented petitioners and patent owners in numerous IPR proceedings.
