Patent Reexaminations and Review
Haynes and Boone attorneys have been involved in hundreds of ex parte and inter partes reexaminations, most of which involve patents that are concurrently involved in litigation. Our vast experience in reexamination practices before the PTO, as well as our established patent litigation practice, has made Haynes and Boone one of the firms clients seek for participating in post-issuance proceedings before the PTO, including inter partes review and other trial procedures at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB). In fact, our patent attorneys have been some of the earliest participants in inter partes reviews since the proceedings became available. Our patent attorneys frequently write and speak about patent reexamination and post-issuance proceedings, including presenting at the PTO along with various members of the Office. Our attorneys work in most areas of technology, including electrical, mechanical, software, and chemical. With this level of procedural and technical experience, we have a strong record of success in achieving our clients’ goals.
