Venable LLP merged with Fitzpatrick, Cella, Harper & Scinto in autumn 2018, combining Fitzpatrick, Cella, Harper & Scinto’s strength in patent prosecution with the acquiring firm’s wider geographical footprint and service offering. Instructions often come from life sciences clients, but the team is also adept at advising on electronics and technology patents. The group is primarily known for its PTAB practice, directed by Justin Oliver in the Washington DC office. For Canon, the group recently secured a precedential PTAB decision regarding follow-on IPR petitions, defeating petitioner General Plastic Industrial. Counsel Benjamin Pelletier joined the San Francisco office from Arnold & Porter. Former patent chair Michael Sartori joined Baker Botts L.L.P.. Steven Schwarz joined Johnson & Johnson as senior patent counsel.
