Join us on the evening of January 26, 2017 for our annual Judges’ Dinner, featuring the Honorable Beverly Bunting of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Judge Bunting has presided in her role as an Administrative Patent Judge at the PTAB for over four years, and she is currently based out of the Elijah McCoy Satellite Office in Detroit, Michigan.
Before joining the PTAB, Judge Bunting spent 13 years at Chrysler as a regulatory specialist and engineer, and an additional 20 years in private practice as an IP attorney. With an extensive career as a practicing attorney and as an Administrative Patent Judge at the forefront of increasingly important AIA trials, Judge Bunting offers a unique perspective for IP attorneys navigating the still-new waters of the AIA.
