WHIPgroup has been listed by Managing IP magazine as one of the most active law firms before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). Attorneys Wesley W. Whitmyer, Jr., Michael J. Kosma and Michael A. Lavine have been counsel of record in more than a dozen Inter Partes Review (IPR) and Covered Business Method (CBM) proceedings before the PTAB.

WHIPgroup is geared towards continued growth in this field.
