WHIPgroup regularly represents clients in federal litigation, and continuously has a half dozen infringement litigations pending in districts courts throughout the US. In addition to federal litigation, WHIPgroup attorneys have handled more than a dozen post-grant proceedings, gaining experience on both sides of Inter Partes Review (IPR) and Covered Business Method (CBM) matters. WHIPgroup started its @PTTAB Blog to chronicle this fast-moving area of patent law and provide regular insightful analysis. Combining this knowledge with significant hands-on litigation experience makes WHIPgroup a formidable litigation advocate.
In recent years, there is virtually no high-stakes US patent litigation that does not have a USPTO Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) component. Having established a successful track record in PTAB proceedings (IPR, CBM, PGR, and patent prosecution appeals), WHIPgroup’s attorneys understand how the PTAB’s evolving rules and precedent can significantly impact patent enforcement, defense, and prosecution.
