The newly released Post-Grant Patent Practice, 2nd Edition is an invaluable reference guiding patent professionals on all PTO post-issuance procedures.

Written by four former Administrative Patent Judges of the PTO, this 880-page resource marks a turning point between the ebb of the first-to-invent system and the flow of the “first-inventor-to-file” system.

This 2nd Edition is co-published with the American Intellectual Property Law Association, and significantly and thoroughly revises the 1st Edition based on the AIA’s U.S. Code sections, technical corrections, and final regulations. Also included is the PTAB interlocutory and final decisions issued since the 1st Edition was published.

Take a look at some of the highlights included in Post-Grant Patent Practice, 2nd Edition:

  • In-depth analysis of post-grant practices based on key PTAB and federal court decisions
  • A significantly expanded discussion of AIA statutes and final regulations governing discovery, claim construction and amendment, real party in interest, joinder, and concurrent/multiple proceedings.
  • Revised tables and appendices illustrating key provisions of all statutes and regulations governing post-grant practice. 

Post-Grant Patent Practice, 2nd Edition also adds expanded coverage based on recent developments, including relevant federal court case law. You’ll also receive the PTO’s final regulations and the U.S. Code sections governing all post-grant practice — making this 2nd Edition a complete reference guide for patent practitioner and IP professionals.
