Nicholas R. Mattingly
Nick Mattingly focuses on patent and trademark prosecution and counseling for a variety of companies, both small and large. He writes and prepares patent applications in the electrical, mechanical, and software technical fields and has experience in various aspects of infringement, validity analyses, claim construction, and discovery matters.
Nick prides himself in taking a deep dive into a company’s technology and market to understand their vision to develop a plan for protecting their intellectual property that meets the company’s business goals.
Recently, he worked with a startup to develop a patent portfolio that proved to be a key underlying asset for obtaining early round funding. Nick’s experience includes developing strategies for global intellectual property portfolios and, in particular, has procured patents that are included in licensing cooperatives such as standardization and licensing pools.
Nick also frequently travels to Japan and routinely gives lectures about updates to patent law and the latest prosecution strategies. Before going to law school he worked as a registered patent agent and during law school he was a staff member on the University of Baltimore Intellectual Property Law Journal and served as a judicial intern with the Honorable Clayton Greene, Jr. on the Court of Appeals of Maryland.
