Matt Mosteller is an Associate in Fish’s Washington, D.C.* office, where he has several years’ experience in patent prosecution and post-grant proceedings for a wide range of computer-related technologies.  His current prosecution practice focuses on clients varying from individual inventors and pre-funding startups to large public companies. Mr. Mosteller’s practice focuses on patent prosecution and post-grant proceedings in technologies ranging from electrical and computer engineering to biomedical devices and mechanical systems, with specific experience in integrated circuit (IC) design, micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS), computer architectures, cloud-based computing, data mining, big data, human-computer interfaces, software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications, speech recognition and speech interfaces, search engines, database management, and implantable devices and prostheses.

His legal experience encompasses all stages of patent prosecution, inter partes review proceedings, patent appeals, due diligence, invalidity/infringement opinions, and proceedings before the International Trade Commission.  He has also been involved with several post-grant proceedings including inter partes review proceedings for technologies in related fields. Mr. Mosteller’s background includes design and fabrication experience with the MEMS Sensors and Actuators Laboratory (MSAL) and Maryland Nanocenter FabLab at the University of Maryland, as well as graduate-level research and coursework in device physics and fabrication, microfluidics, biosensing, and signal processing.

Beyond this technical experience, Mr. Mosteller regularly assists with strategic patent portfolio development and analysis, as well as patent validity opinions.  He has a B.S. in electrical engineering and an M.S. in systems engineering, both from the University of Maryland, and is currently a J.D. candidate attending Georgetown Law School. He is also the author of several peer-reviewed publications relating to electrically enhanced biosensing/treatment in integrated microfluidic devices, and integrated system design for biomedical systems.
