Virtual In-House Counsel

McNish PLLC can operate as an extension of your in-house team to manage your matters before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. While many companies have in-house patent counsel and in-house litigation counsel, PTAB proceedings involve a body of administrative law and a style of advocacy that may be unfamiliar to both of them. Further, your company may not face enough PTAB matters to justify hiring full-time in-house PTAB counsel.

Enter McNish PLLC, a dedicated PTAB practice. In addition to representing clients in more than 90 PTAB proceedings, Kevin McNish has managed attorney teams representing both petitioners and patent owners. For petitioners, he can provide an experienced “red team” to refine draft petitions to address common patent owner techniques. For patent owners, he can teach advanced and unorthodox strategies honed over years of litigating against the large law firms that frequently represent petitioners. And for both petitioners and patent owners, he can help keep your PTAB and district court litigation strategies in sync.

McNish PLLC can offer virtual in-house counsel services either on a matter-by-matter basis or as a subscription. Please contact the firm for additional details.
