Cadwalader IP Team Successfully Defeats IPR Petitions for Three of Anheuser Busch’s Patents

March 15, 2019

In response to an ITC investigation filed by Anheuser Busch challenging the importation of Heineken’s polymer keg products, Heineken filed four Inter Partes Review petitions in the United States Patent and Trademark Office in an attempt to invalidate three Anheuser Busch patents asserted in the Investigation.

The Cadwalader IP team developed and drafted the Patent Owner Preliminary Responses arguing that the petitions be denied on the merits. The Patent Trial and Appeal Board agreed and denied all four IPR petitions. Danielle Tully was key in preparing the Preliminary Responses, along with Maegan Fuller, Dina Halajian, and Andrew Fessak.

Dorothy Auth and Peter Moll are the partners in charge of the matter.
