In addition to his prosecution practice, Matt has also represented clients in patent litigation matters, including litigating multiple wireless telecommunications-related patents. Matt’s background as both a patent litigator and patent prosecutor has provided him with a holistic view of the patent process and informs his approach to preparation and prosecution.
