Review Matthew Bycer

About Me

Matt earned degrees in physics and business-economics at Brown University before embarking upon a career as a technical consultant for Accenture, where he worked on large software installation projects, working with ERP solutions such as SAP and Oracle for large corporate clients such as GE, BSC and EMC2.  In pursuit of patent law, Matt returned to Arizona to earn a joint JD/MBA from the University of Arizona, where he worked in the physical sciences department of the UA Office of Technology Transfer.  In addition, Matt spent time as an extern in the chambers of Chief Judge Stephen M. McNamee, District Court of Arizona, and assisted in the resolution of a complex patent litigation dispute in the field of aeronautics.  Matt has experience in patent consulting and patent landscaping, running an exploratory patent research project involving optical disk storage technologies.  Matt has years of experience in patents and intellectual property at a top-rated intellectual property (IP) boutique where he was involved in obtaining, defending and enforcing IP.  Matt thrives on supporting small and growing businesses, using IP to improve the competitive positioning of our clients.  Matt is a member of Phi Kappa Psi fraternity and a life member of Sigma Xi, scientific research society.  In addition to patents, Matt enjoyed a short stint as a rugby player and currently enjoys skiing, golf and gardening.
