O’Melveny pilots petitioners and respondents through the twists and turns of inter partes review and other post-grant proceedings, including appeal. We know how best to employ these tools—or defeat them—because our lawyers helped create the rules and policy. Our team is led by a former Vice Chief Judge of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board and Senior Legal Advisors to the Director of the USPTO.
