Director Sal Bezos and Associate Tim Tang will be speaking at AIPLA’s 2021 Virtual PTAB Bench and Bar Conference, which will occur on Thursday, August 5th, from 1:00 PM – 5:30 PM ET. During the program, Sal will moderate the “Fireside Chat” with Chief Judge Scott Boalick, and Tim will be speaking on the panel “Legal Experience and Advancement Program or LEAP.”

The 2021 VIRTUAL Patent Trial and Appeal Board Bench & Bar program will be an informative, interactive program covering topics including practical guidance for AIA trials and ex parte appeals, as well as various PTAB initiatives. You can choose topics that interest you and engage with fellow practitioners and USPTO personnel in a series of smaller group settings. After learning about the latest developments in PTAB practice, stay for the networking session so you can connect with fellow practitioners and USPTO personnel.

The PTAB Bench & Bar program will be a four-hour program designed for new and experienced practitioners who want useful, timely content to help them in their practice before the PTAB, so they can give their best to their clients.
