The 2022 PTAB Masters™ program, presented by IPWatchdog®, will be co-chaired by Scott McKeown and Gene Quinn, will focus on the Patent Trial and Appeal Board from the viewpoint of both the patent owner and petitioners challenging patents. From the most important issues facing the PTAB and USPTO as an agency, to discretionary denials and parallel litigation, through PTAB trial tactics and strategies, this program will address the real world issues facing stakeholders by presenting best practices, expert insights, and master level planning.
IPWatchdog is an Accredited Sponsor in Arkansas and Texas.
