The 2018 PTAB Bar Association Annual Conference

The 2018 PTAB Bar Association Annual Conference

Speaking Engagement

WilmerHale is a proud sponsor and an active participant on the planning committee for the 2018 PTAB Bar Association Annual Conference. This exciting nationwide conference will bring together practitioners, in-house counsel, and members of the bench for a dynamic discussion of the Patent Trial Appeal Board (PTAB) best practices, recent developments and trends, and policy considerations. Registration is open to all PTAB Bar Association members and non-members.

WilmerHale Partner Monica Grewal will moderate a panel titled “PTAB Trends and Hot Topics.” This session will focus on trends that have the potential to significantly alter existing PTAB practices, both with respect to practice and jurisprudence. For instance, the panel will address sovereign immunity, the effect of the new rules implemented in 2016, APA issues in light of the Federal Circuit's relatively increasing focus on APA flaws, supplemental evidence, and joinder of time-barred petitions.
