Patent validity questions can arise when someone challenges the validity of a patent. These questions may relate to the patent’s scope, novelty, or non-obviousness, among other issues. Validity questions can be raised in various contexts, such as during litigation, patent office proceedings, or licensing negotiations.

Answering patent validity questions requires a thorough understanding of patent law and a careful analysis of the relevant facts and evidence. Legal professionals with experience in patent litigation and prosecution can help clients navigate these complex issues and develop effective strategies for challenging or defending patent validity.

If you have questions about the validity of a patent, it’s important to consult with an experienced patent attorney who can provide guidance and representation throughout the process.

PTAB trials, or trials before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, are proceedings that allow parties to challenge the validity of a patent in an administrative forum. There are several types of PTAB trials, including inter partes review, post-grant review, and covered business method review. These trials are often faster and less expensive than traditional litigation, making them an attractive option for parties seeking to resolve patent disputes.

During a PTAB trial, the parties present their arguments and evidence to the board, which makes a determination as to the validity of the patent in question. PTAB trials are complex and require specialized knowledge of patent law and procedure. Experienced patent attorneys can provide valuable guidance and representation throughout the process, helping clients navigate the unique challenges of PTAB trials and achieve their desired outcomes.

McGlew & Tuttle’s team of experienced patent attorneys have a strong track record in representing clients in PTAB trials, providing effective guidance and representation throughout the complex proceedings.

Prior art analysis is a critical service that McGlew & Tuttle offers to clients who are seeking to obtain, challenge or enforce a patent. Prior art refers to any publicly available information that can be used to assess the novelty and non-obviousness of an invention, including publications, patents, and other sources of information. A thorough prior art analysis can help clients identify potential patentability issues, as well as develop effective strategies for patent prosecution, litigation, and licensing.

Our team of experienced patent attorneys at McGlew & Tuttle has extensive experience in conducting comprehensive prior art searches and analyses. We use a variety of sophisticated tools and databases to conduct searches and analyze prior art, providing clients with a clear understanding of the strength and potential limitations of their inventions. Our attorneys also stay up-to-date with the latest developments in patent law and procedure, ensuring that our clients receive the most effective and comprehensive analysis possible.
