Matt Werber helps clients with matters related to intellectual property litigation, including patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets.
I have litigated cases involving a wide range of technologies, including enterprise software, cybersecurity, ecommerce, semiconductor mechanics, mechanical devices, medical devices, electronic components and water treatment systems, among many others. My litigation experience extends to federal jury trials and appeals, inter partes review (IPR) and covered business method (CBM) proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, and Section 337 investigations before the United States International Trade Commission. I also represent and advise clients in litigation and non-litigation matters concerning source code and enterprise software installation.
I also regularly counsel enterprises large and small on overall patent and IP portfolio strategies and bring significant experience preparing applications and other Patent Office filings. I recently helped a client revise its overall patent prosecution strategy to better align with the client’s business goals and to put it in the best position for continued growth.
Recent patent-friendly decisions emerging from the Federal Circuit have questioned the usefulness of early Section 101 eligibility challenges. Accordingly, we will likely see software and business method patent cases making a comeback as patentees anticipate a greater likelihood their cases will survive the pleadings stage.
