This interactive panel will cover the nuts and bolts of successfully conducting simultaneous inter partes reviews and section 337 investigations and will provide you with best practices and strategies to successfully navigate these actions. Our mock co-pending proceedings will tackle such conundrums as:  
  • Evaluating best timing for IPR filings with a co-pending section 337 case
  • Analyzing when stays might apply to ITC proceedings and potential due process concerns
    • Maximizing benefits of filing IPRs without a stay
  • Using concessions from one venue at the other
  • Understanding what estoppel from an IPR applies at the ITC
