Committee on Appeals from the PTAB
This committee is focused on appellate review of PTAB decisions by the Federal Circuit and Supreme Court, from IPR/CBM/PGR trials, ex parte appeals, reexaminations, derivations, and interferences. The committee reviews appellate opinions and statistics for cases originating from the PTAB and seeks to foster initiatives valuable to its membership relating to appellate advocacy. The committee aims to provide its members with opportunities to meet and share insights with others members who are interested in appellate advocacy. The specific initiatives seek to engage members and create collaboration, publication, and speaking opportunities. The committee also proposes initiatives to the Board of Directors and comments on amicus briefs.
