New Inter Partes Reexamination Treatise.

Posted in Practice Commentary by Jake Ward on February 2, 2009

Matthew A. Smith, a member of the adjunct faculty at George Washington University Law School and a Foley Lardner attorney experienced in reexamination, has now published a practical treatise on inter partes reexamination.  Mr. Smith has provided a sample copy of this book, free for copying and redistribution.

Mr. Smith particularly points out the section on Third Party Requester win rates (beginning on page 47 of the book), and the below graphic related thereto.


The treatise is based on Mr. Smith’s day-to-day patent reexamination practice, and he believes that the treatise is a comprehensive study of the inter partes reexamination process.   Enjoy!
