FIRM NEWS
Wood Herron & Evans LLP, the region’s
largest intellectual property law firm, has
introduced a new practice group to provide
guidance on post grant proceedings. Led by
Cincinnati partner Tom Burger, this new
group was initiated as a result of the recently
enacted Leahy-Smith America Invents Act.
Initially, 11 attorneys with extensive experi-
ence in patent prosecution, patent licensing,
and patent litigation will contribute to the
post grant proceedings group. These attor-
neys will focus on the complexities of existing
and new USPTO Post Grant Proceedings,
continuing to work for firm clients using
existing procedures where appropriate and
taking advantage of new procedures.
