Matthew Harvey


800 W. Main Street, Suite 1750, Boise, ID 83702

Matt is a registered patent attorney and focuses on patent prosecution, patent analysis, and IP due diligence matters across electrical engineering and standards-essential technologies.

He brings particular experience drafting and prosecuting applications for patent owners within the electrical hardware, software, and wireless telecommunications industries.

In addition to his prosecution practice, Matt has also represented clients in patent litigation matters, including litigating multiple wireless telecommunications-related patents, many of which were declared essential to and/or asserted against 3GPP standards (GSM, UMTS, and LTE). 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. 

Prior to joining Holland & Hart, Matt practiced as a litigator with Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP in Denver and as a patent agent with Fenwick & West LLP in Silicon Valley. He also worked as an electrical engineer for the U.S. Department of Energy at Sandia National Laboratories and as a graduate researcher in the Wireless Sensing Lab at the University of Washington.
