Motions to Amend End to End
September 10th, 2021
In association with Virtual Patent Gateway, LLC (external link), Alyssa Holtslander from Unified Patents (external link) and Kevin McNish from McNish PLLC co-presented a one-hour webinar on motion to amend practice at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
Filing a motion to amend in a Patent Trial and Appeal Board proceeding involves a host of strategic decisions, as does opposing a motion to amend. Those decisions must take into account not only the present, but also the future: not only the PTAB proceeding, but also any appeal to the Federal Circuit and any co-pending district court litigation. This webinar covers the law and procedure of motions to amend; statistics and trends about motions to amend; what happens after the PTAB decides a motion to amend; and practice tips for patent owners and petitioners.
