Welcome to our Fall 2018 newsletter. We are pleased to provide recent firm news and articles from our WHIP Blog. In the past, we have highlighted our strengths as a patent and trademark prosecution firm. For this issue, we seek to demonstrate how prosecution helps to inform our litigation practices in Courts around the U.S. and at the USPTO.
WHIPgroup’s litigation practice extends around the country, currently against accused infringers in New York, California, Delaware, Ohio, Alabama, Indiana, and our home state Connecticut. At the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, WHIPgroup has a proven track record of successfully defending its clients’ patent rights in Inter Partes Review proceedings — and invalidating patents owned by our clients’ competitors. To learn more, please visit our newsletter.
As always, we remain committed to our clients, so please let us know how we can assist you. Also, please keep up to date on our latest news at www.whipgroup.com.
