Matt is a registered patent attorney with a mixed background in law, engineering, and the humanities who has prepared and prosecuted both U.S. and international patents. His unique multidisciplinary perspective and artful writing ability help him serve the most cutting-edge clients – such as those in cryptocurrency – developing technologies where the legal framework is still in progress. Matt’s practice focuses on preparing and prosecuting patents covering a wide array of computer software and hardware technologies.

In his legal career, Matt has worked for a multinational law firm as a Patent Litigation associate in San Diego, followed by an Am Law 100 law firm in San Francisco as a Patent Prosecution associate.
