More than 100 patent practitioners have participated in LEAP in the first two years of the program. They have presented oral arguments to the Patent Trial and Appeal Board in actual cases—both ex parte appeals and AIA trial proceedings—and taken advantage of training opportunities such as mock arguments. Additionally, many attorneys from law firms and corporations have sponsored the participation of LEAP-eligible practitioners. A few of the LEAP participants and LEAP sponsors are featured on this page. Read about their experience with LEAP and the many benefits that the program has to offer. Presentation of these LEAP participants and sponsors is for illustrative purposes only and does not constitute or imply endorsement by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the U.S. Department of Commerce, or the U.S. government.
