    Please arrive early for registration
  • Zoom


Please join the New York Intellectual Property Law Association (NYIPLA) PTAB Committee on February 27th for a discussion regarding the RCE v. Appeal Considerations. 

This interactive meeting will be hosted by Co-Chairs Charley Macedo and Ken Adamo, of the NYIPLA PTAB Committee.

After receiving a final rejection, applicants have a choice whether to appeal to the PTAB or file a request for continued examination (RCE). 

Listen to a panel by the PTO on how to navigate that choice.

Additionally, we will be joined by Clint Mehall, co-chair of NYIPLA's Patent Law & Practice Committee, who will discuss an analytical view of different arguments mentioned in PTAB decisions and their correlation to outcome.
