Practical Tips and Reflections on IPR and CBM proceedings

James Heintz, DLA Piper
Gianni Minutoli, DLA Piper

The AIA-implemented post grant proceedings have become useful tools to thwart pending and threatened litigation. Join us for a discussion of practical tips and reflections from over two years’ worth of experience with these proceedings.  We will also discuss whether the new rules for amending claims during an IPR will make the right to amend less illusory.
