Matt Kreeger is the Co-Chair of the firm's Patent Interferences Practice Group. Mr. Kreeger specializes in helping clients find efficient, creative, business-oriented solutions to high stakes intellectual property disputes. Mr. Kreeger also helps develop patent prosecution and reexamination strategies that protect his clients' patents and minimize the clients' risks.
After one of his clients was sued for patent infringement, Mr. Kreeger obtained an early summary judgment of non-infringement, ending the case before significant expense. In another case, he obtained a claim construction ruling that convinced the other party to settle on favorable terms.
Mr. Kreeger has served as lead or co-lead counsel in more than 15 patent interferences, including one ground-breaking interference confirming that the client was the first to invent a test to screen for HIV antibodies used in blood banks throughout the world.
Mr. Kreeger also has represented clients in disability access cases, including the National Federation of the Blind against Target Corp. case. In the Target case, which recently settled, the plaintiffs alleged that Target violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and California state law by maintaining a web site that was not accessible to blind users.
