Experience

Successful PTAB Administrative Appeal

Won an administrative appeal for a global technology company before the U.S. Patent Trial and Appeal Board in a case involving a patent application that sought to protect a method of predicting a consumer’s future purchases, based on previous transaction card purchases indicating that a “life event” had recently occurred for the consumer.  The United States Patent and Trademark Office had rejected the application as directed to an abstract idea under a 2014 Supreme Court case.  In its decision in favor of the client, the Appeal Board held that any abstract idea was integrated into a practical application because the patent claims “improve the underlying consumer behavior prediction technology.”
