Bar Reinstatement

If an attorney or patent agent is suspended or excluded from practice before the USPTO, the general rule is that they must petition for reinstatement. The duties of a suspended or excluded attorney or agent, such as those set forth in 37 C.F.R. § 11.58, can be very complex. Moreover, failure to abide by those rules can significantly delay the process for reinstatement and may result in a refusal to reinstate a suspended attorney or agent. Michael McCabe assists attorneys and agents who are facing the arduous process of license suspension to ensure that they comply with their legal duties and in gaining readmission to the Bar, including USPTO reinstatement petitions filed pursuant to 37 C.F.R. § 11.60.
