Jenner & Block Partner Sara Tonnies Horton joined a panel discussion during a program called The Power of PTAB: The New Authority in Patent Law.  Ms. Horton’s panel was called “Stopping at the PTAB – The Estoppel Effect of PTAB Decisions.”  Sponsored by IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law and the PTAB Bar Association, the program was held on October 20, 2017, in Chicago.

Mr. Horton serves as a director of the PTAB Bar Association, which launched last year.  Its creation involved collaboration among more than 45 law firms, including Jenner & Block, over several months. The Association’s mission is to promote the highest professional and ethical standards among lawyers and stakeholders who appear before the PTAB; to help establish best practices for the unique practice and skills required before the PTAB; and to foster communication among its various stakeholders.
