The USPTO deploys a complex network of production and quality incentives that influence examination outcomes. Those incentives, and their effects on patent quality, present important strategic considerations for patent counsel seeking to maximize portfolio value or manage litigation risk. The panelists will address the channels by which the USPTO incentivizes examiners’ production and regulates quality, how those channels influence examiner decision-making, how patent prosecution counsel can leverage examination incentives to improve outcomes, and how patent quality issues may be considered in the context of litigation and risk management.
 
Presented by: Roshan Mansinghani of Unified Patents; Chen Li of Medler Ferro Woodhouse & Mills; and Eric Blatt of Rothwell Figg Ernst & Manbeck
