McAndrews Shareholder Herbert D. Hart III to Discuss PTAB Trial Proceedings under the AIA at 2013 IPO Annual Meeting


McAndrews, Held & Malloy Shareholder Herbert D. Hart III will be a featured speaker at the Intellectual Property Owners Association’s (IPO) 2013 Annual Meeting.  Because of his significant experience litigating before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), Hart was invited to organize and participate in the session titled, “Back To The Future: Trial Practice at the PTAB,” on September 16, 2013, from 1:45-3:15 pm.

Specifically, Hart will address current practice, decisions, and strategies in both litigating and managing PTAB trials, which are highly specialized, fast-paced, and unforgiving for those inexperienced in PTAB trial practice. Hart will also provide trial practice tips directly applicable to today’s post-grant trial proceedings. Other long-time PTAB practitioners featured on the panel include:

  • Bruce Stoner, Greenblum & Bernstein, P.L.C. (Former Chief Administrative Patent Judge, Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences), Moderator
  • Oliver Ashe, Ashe, P.C., Speaker
