They do have the reputation of having a select few attorneys who will walk across the street and yell/scream their way to an allowance. I have yet to personally experience it, but I have heard it too many times from too many examiners to believe it to be false. Maybe my day is coming . . . I have heard several stories about ***** attorneys milking the clock during interviews to discuss things like whether an IDS is proper or not (for as experienced as ***** is, they cant file an IDS to save their lives sometimes), so there may be some truth to what the first poster said.
*** loves personal interviews and their arguments are not always that great. One of the attorney's from *** kept repeating that he actually read the specification the night before while he was chewing away on a piece of gum as loudly as possible in my face. I don't mind weak arguments but I do mind having a man-cow in my office. During another personal interview with ***, a different attorney was arguing with me that he understands that I want my count but that his client would really like their patent. I told him I don't see any need for an attorney to even discuss an examiners counts during an interview at which point he got quiet and started flipping through a stack of papers as if he had prepared something. My SPE suggested that I should start noting these things on the interview summary so that the client is aware of what actually goes on during interviews; I think that's a great idea and all examiners should consider it.
