A Practical Guide to Success in Opposition and Appeal
The previous chapter addressed issues relevant to inter partes appeals, i.e. appeals against decisions of opposition divisions. This chapter will deal with ex parte appeals, in particular appeals against decisions of examining divisions (see Figure 5.1). To a large extent, the observations made above for inter partes appeals apply equally to these ex parte appeals. Therefore in the present chapter only those points that distinguish ex parte appeal from inter partes appeal proceedings will be mentioned.
