Matt focuses his intellectual property practice on patent litigation, strategic IP counseling, and patent valuation. He has experience representing clients before the International Trade Commission (ITC), Federal district courts, and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. Matt’s practice covers complex technologies such as microprocessors, graphics processors, RF circuitry, LCD display systems, microelectromechanical systems, audio and video processing, VLSI design, consumer telecommunications systems, and DDR-compliant memory modules and DRAM.
Matt has held lead roles in multiple ITC investigations, where he managed teams of technologists, coordinated complex discovery efforts, developed infringement, validity, and claim construction positions, deposed fact and expert witnesses, and participated in evidentiary hearings. Matt has served as liaison in German enforcement programs, where he worked closely with foreign counsel to develop strategies for infringement and nullity proceedings. Additionally, he has served as counsel and liaison in multiple inter partes review and post-grant proceedings, where he developed and coordinated validity positions for patents being simultaneously asserted in multiple jurisdictions.
Matt also advises clients in complex IP transactions and related diligence, which involves developing and negotiating multiparty agreements and performing extensive transactional diligence on large domestic and international IP portfolios. Matt provides portfolio management strategies for high-technology companies, including those with standard-essential technology in the memory, RF, and telecommunication spaces. In addition to his work with electronic device and software companies, Matt works with university technology transfer offices to provide strategic IP guidance on portfolio management and patent valuation.
Before joining Mintz, Matt was a technology consultant and application architect for a software company in the Boston area. His work focused on enterprise-level data management and software development. Before that, Matt conducted research at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, focusing on molten alloy composition detection via x-ray fluorescence.
