PTAB Spotlight: The Future of IPRs

Latham lawyers discuss what three important PTAB cases mean for the future of IPRs.


Global Co-chair of Latham’s Intellectual Property Litigation Practice, Matt Moore, and Chair of Latham’s PTAB Practice, Bob Steinberg, provide an update on two pending US Supreme Court cases (Oil States and SAS) and the Federal Circuit’s en banc case (Aqua Products).

They discuss how the cases could affect the core mandate of the PTAB and its role going forward, the potential impact on the district court litigation going forward, and important issues for patent owners and petitioners to consider.
