About the Prosecution First Blog is a resource of Finnegan, providing news and information about all aspects of U.S. patent prosecution. Blog posts include discussion and analysis of issues related to application drafting, patentability—including hot topics such as § 101, post-issuance processes available to patent owners, PTAB and Federal Circuit decisions that impact prosecution practice, and the latest news from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The blog also includes practical patent prosecution tips in the form of “Prosecution Pointers.” Because the Finnegan team of authors and editors include accomplished patent prosecutors, litigators, and post-grant practitioners, all blog posts are written with both a prosecution first mindset and an eye towards litigation. The blog does not constitute legal advice nor does it indicate the views of Finnegan or any Finnegan attorney regarding whether any particular case was correctly or incorrectly decided.
