IPR Aftermath: Reexamination, Issue Preclusion, and Leveraging the Record*

View Session Speakers

CLEWe’ve heard the story in the past, which is sadly all too common.

How is this possible?

This panel will explore the role of reexamination after an inter partes review proceeding has concluded, or not been initiated, and what, if any issue preclusion there is or should be in a reexamination post-IPR.
