PATENT LITIGATION

U.S. Patent and Trademark Office
We provide counsel for proceedings before the USPTO, including requests for patent reexaminations, patent reissues, trademark oppositions, and trademark cancellations. We also handle patent disputes during prosecution and after issuance via new mechanisms under the Leahy–Smith America Invents Act: third-party citation of prior art, derivation proceedings, inter partes review, and post-grant review.
FEDERAL
Our firm has successfully handled litigation matters from the lowest state courts and federal district courts up to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) and all the way up to the Supreme Court of the United States. Our high-profile success includes the SCOTUS case TrafFix Devices, Inc. v. Mktg. Displays, Inc., in which our firm convinced the court of an overlap between trade dress law and patent law and persuaded it to clearly define the coverage afforded under each.

POST-GRANT PROCEEDINGS

There are often ways to contest a patent’s validity without lengthy litigation. The Leahy–Smith America Invents Act (AIA) provides a number of administrative options for patent review, including inter partes review (IPR), post-grant review (PGR), and CBM proceedings. 

POST-GRANT PROCEEDINGS

There are often ways to contest a patent’s validity without lengthy litigation. The Leahy–Smith America Invents Act (AIA) provides a number of administrative options for patent review, including inter partes review (IPR), post-grant review (PGR), and CBM proceedings. Reising attorneys have invaluable experience appearing before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) and know how to efficiently manage challenges to patent validity as well as how to defend against them.   

TECHNOLOGIES

Patenting and protecting groundbreaking technology begins with understanding that technology. That’s why so many of our attorneys have degrees in mechanical, chemical, electrical, and computer science engineering, as well as private-sector experience.
