Morrison & Foerster has a deep and experienced group of attorneys with expertise in patent reexaminations. In the past three years alone, we have filed or prosecuted over 80 reexaminations. In these reexaminations, our attorneys have represented third-party requesters seeking to initiate reexamination, as well as patent owners defending patents in reexamination.
Our experience in reexaminations is not limited to ex parte reexamination. Our IP lawyers are currently working on over a dozen inter partes reexaminations for clients.
Reexaminations require a unique combination of scientific, patent, and litigation expertise. Our full-service, collaborative IP practice provides our reexamination teams with the expertise needed to handle matters in fields such as biotechnology, chemistry, communications, electronics, and software. Each reexamination team draws from our pool of world-class scientists, engineers, patent prosecutors, and trial lawyers to create a sound strategy for every matter.
Our clients include DexCom, Echostar, The Motion Picture Association of America, Mitsubishi, Novartis, Scantibodies, and Yamaha. Two notable reexamination victories are In re Swanson and In re Amado.
