SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Brooks Kushman Shareholder Sangeeta Shah was featured in Law360 July 11, 2015 article, “5 AIA appeals to watch at the Federal Circuit.”

The article discusses appeals at the Federal Circuit related to the relatively new America Invents Act. In most cases, the Federal Circuit has largely backed decisions made by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB).

According to the article, Shah “expects that the Federal Circuit will remain largely deferential to the patent office, saying she believes the appellate court would prefer to have the PTO regulate itself.”

Shah is co-chair of post grant proceedings at Brooks Kushman and serves as the firm’s chief diversity officer. Her practice primarily focuses on post-grant challenges and patent opinions. She represents several Fortune 500 clients, providing strategic counseling and guidance on their global IP portfolios.

Shah holds a Juris Doctor from Wayne State University and a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry and Economics from Kalamazoo College.
