Matthew L. Kaufman works in both the firm’s Litigation and Patent Groups. He represents companies in matters relating to a broad range of technologies, including chip and memory architectures, imaging devices, wireless communication standards, UI/UX systems, semiconductor processing, software, medical devices, and networking standards and hardware. Though his practice focuses on intellectual property litigation in federal courts, he also regularly advises clients on pre-suit investigations, patent portfolio analysis and post-grant proceedings.
Matthew manages and tries complex patent matters on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants in many of the top patent venues throughout the United States, including the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern District of Texas, the Eastern District of Virginia, the Southern District of New York, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. In his federal court practice, Matthew has overseen all aspects of discovery (including complex e-discovery issues), prepared pleadings, argued motions and Markman hearings, examined fact and expert witnesses (both at trial and at deposition), and prepared appellate arguments. Regularly working closely with experts and engineers on cases to analyze his clients’ most complicated issues, Matthew leverages his technical skills to prepare both technical experts and fact witnesses for depositions and trial. Matthew also has experience managing and harmonizing patent disputes that include simultaneous actions in multiple international jurisdictions.
In addition to patent litigation in federal courts, Matthew has particular experience in patent office proceedings in both the U.S. and Europe, including the management and execution of patent reexamination and EPO opposition proceedings.
Matthew earned his J.D. cum laude from New York Law School, where he was Editor-in-Chief of the NYLS Journal of Human Rights and a recipient of the Lung-Chu Chen Award for Excellence in the Field of Human Rights. Before law school, Matthew earned his B.A. from the University of Rochester and worked in the technology sector developing enterprise client/server systems for a variety of applications. He has extensive experience developing, maintaining and implementing database systems, broad knowledge regarding the architecture and deployment of wired and wireless networks, and is familiar with a number of development environments, languages and frameworks.
