Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 30, 2014
Capital Legal Group PLLC (“CLG”) is now offering fixed fee representation before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (“PTAB”) in post grant proceedings such as Inter Partes Reviews (“IPR”) and Covered Business Method (“CBM”) reviews. Almost all law firms bill clients on a hourly basis for PTAB proceedings. As result, the cost of such representation can be unpredictable and much higher than expected In contrast, CLG's fixed fee IPR/CBM representation provides patent holders with certainty of the cost.
The passage of the America Invents Act (“AIA”) instituted a new method to challenge the validity of patents – post grant review proceedings. These challenges are being utilized by accused infringers of patents as a matter of course. To provide patent holders certainty in their legal costs, CLG provides patent holders with fixed quotes for legal services to represent the patent holder before the PTAB in these post grant challenges. Upon the request for a post grant challenge, CLG will analyze the petition and provide a fixed quote to handle each stage of the PTAB proceeding, including the preliminary response, and (if necessary) post-institution response and trial.
Capital Legal Group has significant experience in working with patent holders to protect and monetize their intellectual property. Its new fixed fee representation can also be integrated into a hybrid fee arrangement that includes hourly or contingent fee representation.
