The firm represented adidas AG in a successful petition for inter partes review ("IPR") of U.S. Patent No. 7,347,011 assigned to Nike, Inc. (Case Number IPR2013-00067). In response, Nike canceled all issued claims in favor of proposed new claims. In 2014, the USPTO Patent Trial & Appeal Board determined that all of the proposed new claims were invalid. In 2015, the Federal Circuit affirmed the Board's decision in part, and has remanded to the Board to formally address evidence of secondary considerations.
