Maschoff Brennan has significant experience representing clients before the USPTO in post-grant proceedings of all types, including those proceedings created by the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (“AIA”). We have successfully represented both petitioners seeking to invalidate patent claims, as well as patent owners looking to maintain the validity of their claims. Successful representation in an AIA post-grant proceeding requires a unique combination of skill and experience.
Practitioners must not only possess a thorough understanding of the complexity of the AIA and USPTO rules, but must also be capable of taking and defending depositions, working with experts, drafting briefs and presenting oral argument. Our post-grant team combines seasoned patent prosecutors who are familiar with USPTO rules and procedure with trial attorneys who understand the art of persuasive writing and oral advocacy.
