Inter Partes Review
Inter Partes Review challenges made possible by the 2012 America Invents Act have had a seismic impact on the course patent infringement litigation – giving defendants in infringement litigation the ability to pause litigation and immediately challenge a patent’s validity to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Heim, Payne & Chorush has developed deep experience representing clients in IPR proceedings before the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board. Our team was the first to prevail on behalf of a patent owner in Inter Partes Review proceedings before the USPTO (ABB v Roy-G-Biv 2014). The firm has an active and growing IPR practice and has secured numerous IPR wins for patent holders and accused infringers.
