Patent IPRs and USPTO Proceedings Attorney
Inter partes review (IPR) procedures allow challenges to a patent after approval from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Since 2012, IPRs have been one of the most common types of post-grant proceedings. Additionally, they are considered a more efficient way to challenge a patent rather than heading to the federal courtroom. At BOAG Law, we bring our wealth of knowledge and experience when you need to file IPR as a petitioner or answer one as a patent owner.
You Need an Experienced Patent Law Attorney for All USPTO Proceedings
While a party can represent themselves in an IPR proceeding, you will want an attorney with experience in patent law to navigate the complex legal and technical issues involved in these cases.
An experienced patent attorney can help develop a strategic approach to the IPR, including identifying the most substantial grounds for invalidating the challenged patent claims or presenting them in the most effective way. The IPR process involves filing a petition, responses, and other legal documents, which must comply with strict formatting and content requirements.
An attorney can ensure these documents are properly prepared and submitted on time. If the USPTO decides to hold oral arguments, an attorney can represent the party in front of the panel of administrative judges, responding to all questions from them.
While a party can represent themselves in an IPR, patent law’s highly technical and complex nature makes it advisable to have an experienced attorney who understands the law and this process.
