MBHB practitioners navigate and win proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, including inter partes reviews and post-grant reviews. We represent both petitioners and patent owners, seeking cancellation of patents on behalf of petitioners and defending against patent challenges on behalf of owners.
Our team of expert IP litigators are 100% focused on intellectual property law and interact on a regular basis with the patent office. As a result, clients trust us to guide them through technically complex PTAB proceedings to a successful resolution.
With our active PTAB practice, we get results and outperform the competition in proceedings before the Patent Office. For example, MBHB’s post-institution settlement rate is more than 70% (the PTO’s reported average post-institution settlement rate is around 30%).
