Patent Office Trials

Since the America Invents Act’s new post-grant procedures were implemented in 2012, Haynes and Boone’s Intellectual Property (IP) Practice has been a leader in helping clients protect their patents and invalidate others’ claims at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). These trial proceedings include inter partes review (IPR), covered business method (CBM) review, post-grant review (PGR), and other proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).

Haynes and Boone is a top 10 law firm filing IPRs on behalf of the Petitioner, with an institution rate of 78% and a final decision rate of 82% for canceling claims (Docket Alarm, 2022).

Haynes and Boone attorneys have been involved in over 500 IPR and CBM proceedings before the PTAB, most of which are directed to patents in litigation. Our vast experience in administrative proceedings before the USPTO, and our national patent litigation practice, have made Haynes and Boone one of the firms clients seek for PTAB trials.

Our team of lawyers regularly work with clients in an array of industries, including Internet, computer software, networks, protocols, information security, telecom equipment and standards, energy, imaging systems, semiconductor devices and fabrication, automotive, and business methods.
