Intellectual Property From Every Perspective


Post-Grant Proceedings

Our professionals are known for handling many of the highest stakes post-grant matters ever adjudicated by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Mr. Gardella regularly serves as lead counsel for both challengers and patent owners in matters having stakes running into the billions of dollars — for example, he successfully defended the famous TiVo DVR patent, which generated well over $1 billion in licensing revenue. Mr. Gardella also successfully defended before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board numerous patents covering aseptic packaging technologies, which are used to process about two billion bottles per year. 


On the challenger side, Mr. Gardella prevailed for St. Jude Medical in an array of post-grant proceedings targeting numerous Medtronic patents directed to renal denervation. He has also prevailed in a wide variety of proceedings for Oracle, eBay and Roche Molecular Diagnostics.
