Fitch Even Partner Tom Lebens to Moderate AIPLA Webinar on PTAB Fintiv Factors

July 19, 2021

Fitch Even partner Thomas F. Lebens will moderate the AIPLA CLE webinar “Discretionary Denials Revisited: The New Politics of Fintiv” on July 20 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. CDT.

The webinar, also featuring Scott McKeown of Ropes & Gray, will discuss the Patent Trial and Appeal Board's Fintiv factors, which the PTAB uses to decide whether to decline instituting inter partes review under 35 U.S.C. § 314(a) based on parallel federal court litigation. The webinar will explore current trends in the relevant law, as well as what to expect going forward as the USPTO awaits a new Senate-appointed director.
