He wields his wide-ranging technical experience—including in aerospace engineering, biologics, medical devices, voice-over-IP telephony, and web and mobile application technology—and his experience before federal district courts, the Federal Circuit, and the Patent Trial and Appeal Board to reach creative victories that best achieve his client's goals. In addition to his experience with patent litigation, Mr. Matulewicz-Crowley also has experience litigating trade secret and unfair competition claims and advising clients regarding pre-suit patent matters.
Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Matulewicz-Crowley was an associate at Desmarais LLP. In his prior practice he played a pivotal role in IBM’s successful trial win during its first trial as a patentee in decades, helping to secure a $82.5 million jury verdict on behalf of IBM. Leading up to trial, Mr. Matulewicz-Crowley was generally responsible for two of the four patents-in-suit, and worked on a wide-range of issues concerning both the invalidity and infringement of those patents. In particular, Mr. Matulewicz-Crowley briefed and argued a motion for summary judgment of no invalidity regarding one of Defendant’s invalidity grounds.
Mr. Matulewicz-Crowley also has an active pro bono practice, and has represented an incarcerated plaintiff in an Eighth Amendment prisoner’s rights litigation, an aggrieved employee in a workplace discrimination and harassment lawsuit, and a refugee in their application for asylum based on the persecution they suffered due to their sexual orientation.
During law school, Mr. Matulewicz-Crowley was an active member of NYU Law’s Journal of Intellectual Property and Entertainment Law (“JIPEL”), where he served on the executive committee and, in that role, reviewed, selected, and edited submitted articles for publication.
