Author:Maureen D. Queler

Editor:James D. Stein

Lex Machina has released a report providing insight into proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board from its inception in September 2012 through December 2015. The report aims to provide key trends in PTAB trials. The key findings include the top resolutions (denial of institution, settlement, etc.), the technology centers handling the greatest number of trials, the timing of the trials, the top law firms involved, and the top parties, among others. The report states that it is unique in capturing the entire life-cycle of every PTAB trial, including the pre-institution phase which is often overlooked. Finnegan is pleased to be identified as “the most experienced firm in representing petitioners,” as well as for its work defending patent owners.
