Inter partes reviews (IPR) have become a potent weapon in the arsenal of accused infringers. It provides a potentially cheaper and faster process to invalidate asserted patents than through traditional litigation. At Radulescu LLP, we have used IPRs with notable success for our clients. Lawyers at Radulescu LLP were involved in one of the earliest IPRs, filed on the day this proceeding became available.
