In part one of IP Soundings: Inter Partes Review Strategies, partner David C. Gryce spoke with partners Imran Khaliq and Pamela Fulmer on filing requirements, standards for granting Inter Partes Review (IPR), types of discovery, amending claims, and more. To recap, IPRs are a cost-effective alternative to litigation with an expedited schedule whereby petitioners can expect written decisions within 12-18 months. Additionally, there is a tremendous success rate for petitioners looking to invalidate patents through Inter Partes Review.

In part two of the episode, David, Imran, and Pam examine the general IPR timeline, petition terminations, risks for filers, and results. To watch the video, click the link below.
