On August 28, 2015, Whitmyer IP Group’s attorneys secured a decision by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) reversing all the Examiner’s rejections of the eighteen (18) claims pending in U.S. Patent Application No. 14/108,980, which is assigned to ABB Technology AG. The claims relate to an offshore wind turbine assembly comprising a plurality of wind turbines interconnected by at least two levels of cables, which maintain the position and upright orientation of each wind turbine.

Allowance of the claims and issue of the patent is expected in due course. The ABB Technology AG appeal team included attorneys Wesley W. Whitmyer, Jr. and Michael A. Lavine.
