Jennifer Bailey, partner at Erise IP, will present at the America Invents Act Post-Grant Patent Practice Conference in Arlington, Va., on Feb. 20. Bailey, who specializes in post-grant review of patents and patent prosecution in the electrical, computer software and electromechanical arts, will lead a session titled, “Motions based on Estoppel/ Privity and Mock Conference” along with David Cavanaugh of Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr.

Bailey was lead counsel for Petitioner, Garmin International, in the first inter partes review filed and argued before the PTAB, which resulted in all reviewed claims being held unpatentable. She has prepared and prosecuted hundreds of patent applications covering a wide range of technologies, including encryption and authentication, digital signal processing, payments systems and financial services, GPS devices and medical devices.

Bailey regularly presents to industry and trade organizations on intellectual property issues and has authored articles regarding re-examinations and inter partes reviews published in the IP trade magazines Intellectual Property Today and Landslide.

Also presenting at the conference are two Federal Circuit judges the Honorable Randall Rader, Chief Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the Honorable Pauline Newman, Circuit Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

The America Invents Act led to significant changes in the American patent system. One such change is the creation of post-grant patent review. The International Intellectual Property Institute, in cooperation with Bloomberg BNA, is hosting this two-day, continuing legal education credit-eligible conference about this new procedure. This conference will be based on the Bloomberg BNA treatise Post-Grant Patent Practice, which was authored by four former Administrative Patent Judges.
