DALLAS, January 31, 2017 – Baker Botts L.L.P., a leading international law firm, announced that Wayne Stacy, a partner in the firm’s Intellectual Property (IP) Department, has collaborated with Orion Armon to author the newly released PTAB Digest Deskbook, 2016 Edition. 

The PTAB Digest Deskbook, published by LexisNexis, covers the Patent Trial and Appeal Board's (PTAB) leading decisions regarding post-grant proceedings such as inter partes reviews (IPRs), covered business method reviews (CBMRs), and more, with in-depth analysis of thousands of notable decisions. It is designed to complement Chisum's Patent Law Digest (covering Supreme Court and Federal Circuit decisions). 

Mr. Stacy is a skilled patent litigator in the firm’s PTAB Trials practice, a group that has handled over 220 PTAB procedures, one of the busiest PTAB dockets among all U.S. firms. Baker Botts also publishes the PTAB Trials Blog, which provides a unique perspective on news, trends and analysis of PTAB proceedings as they evolve, including IPRs, CBMRs, and post-grant reviews (PGRs), and the wide-ranging impact the proceedings have on the patent litigation landscape. 

Mr. Stacy recently joined the firm as a partner in the Intellectual Property Department and specializes in competitor-against-competitor cases where injunctions and large damages are at issue. In addition to representing clients before the PTAB, he has tried cases in leading patent jurisdictions such as the Northern District of California and the Eastern District of Texas.
