Dr. Grüneberg to Speak at Practising Law Institute Program on Post-Grant Patent Trials

This fall, the Practising Law Institute (PLI) will welcome Dr. Kirsten Grüneberg, co-founding partner of Grüneberg and Myers PLLC, to speak at a program entitled USPTO Post-Grant Patent Trials 2019: New Challenges & Tactics taking place at PLI’s offices in the Midtown Manhattan area of New York City.

Speakers including former USPTO director David Kappos, former Federal Circuit Chief Judge Randall Rader, and numerous partners from other prominent intellectual property law firms will lend their expertise at the program, which will take place on September 11, 2019. As part of the first panel among several panels set for the full-day program, Dr. Grüneberg will speak about hardening patent portfolios and adjusting patent prosecution strategies. With her varied experience in inter partes review, ex parte reexamination, reissue applications, standard patent prosecution, and strategic counseling, Dr. Grüneberg will provide a holistic view of the strategies that patent applicants and owners can use to protect portfolios against post-grant challenges.

The program will offer deep insights for corporate counsel, patent litigators, patent owners, investors, and other intellectual property professionals. Registration is open for the live program in New York and live groupcasts in several cities, but space is limited. PLI also offers the program via webcast. Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit will be provided for many U.S. jurisdictions.

Launched in September 2017, Grüneberg and Myers PLLC is a 100 percent female- and minority-owned international patent firm. With a broad and sophisticated practice, the firm provides a full range of patent support services, including patent prosecution, counseling, post-grant representation, and M&A due diligence to meet the growing and diverse needs of U.S.-based, European, and Asian companies, entrepreneurs, and inventors.
