IPR/CBM Proofing Patents

Inter partes review proceedings (IPRs) result in cancellation of over 70% of challenged patent claims in the United States. The cancellation rate is higher for covered business method proceedings (CBMs). Some argue these high cancellation rates have cast a shadow and created uncertainty over the patent system in the United States. This presentation will offer strategies and best practices for obtaining US patents that are more resilient to IPR and CBM challenges. Particular focus will be on CBMs as analysis of those proceedings provide guidance on how to overcome 101 Alice rejections in the United States.

Lawyers, licensing professionals, tech transfer personnel, business development professionals and executives with an interest in learning about best practices for obtaining strong patents in the US.

Mike Lee is a director with Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox PLLC, an IP specialty law firm in Washington, DC. His practice focuses on working with clients to strategically patent and license their inventions in the United States and throughout the world. Mike has been counsel on many IPRs/CBMs.
