Inaugural Top 50 Women in PTAB Trials List Released

Top 50 Women in PTAB Trials

WASHINGTON, DC – The PTAB Bar Association published its inaugural Top 50 Women in PTAB Trials list. This special publication, released by the Association’s Women’s Committee as part of a two-year long focus on women practicing before the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office’s Patent Trial & Appeal Board, recognizes female practitioners currently in private practice or at companies who have appeared in the highest number of PTAB trial proceedings since 2012. These leading female practitioners will also be featured in the PTAB Bar Association’s upcoming report on Women at the PTAB, which studies gender diversity at law firms and companies participating in PTAB proceedings. The list is based on information graciously provided by DocketAlarm (www.docketalarm.com).
