IPR's, Re-Examinations and Interferences
Throughout his career, Arnie has been involved in inter partes proceedings in the U.S. Patent Office, including Interferences from the start of his career and more recently IPR's and Reexaminations. As a result, he has extensive hands-on experience with the arcane technical aspects of rules and procedures involving these proceedings in various technologies. Furthermore, his experience in prosecution and litigation has enabled him to develop a particular rapport with the personnel in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office who handle these proceedings, and to present his clients’ positions clearly and effectively.
Arnie has been involved in deal making throughout his career. This not only includes settlements of litigations, but also arrangements that are unique to his clients and their particular products and services. His breadth of experience has permitted him to understand businesses in diverse fields, and to grasp the most important elements of those businesses in order to help propel his clients into far better competitive positions.
Providing "real" opinions
Any attorney can provide an opinion. What's most important to Arnie is that his clients obtain an opinion that has meaning to them and which directly relates to their business objectives. There is a great difference between merely telling your client that they don't infringe a patent or the patent is invalid and relating that advice to the real world. Doing the latter is what Arnie has been providing in the hundreds of opinions he has rendered on validity and infringement in an incredibly diverse field of technologies throughout his career.
