Bryan DeMatteo


Indianapolis, Indiana

Bryan DeMatteo is a partner in Taylor English’s Intellectual Property Department. Based in Indiana, Mr. DeMatteo has more than 20 years of experience in both intellectual property law and engineering. He brings a wealth of knowledge and a unique insight to his practice — helping entrepreneurs and small-to-mid sized businesses procure, monetize and enforce their patents, trademarks and copyrights. Mr. DeMatteo has extensive experience litigating patents for both plaintiffs and defendants and has participated at trial in numerous intellectual property cases.  He also regularly represents clients in connection with inter partes review (IPR) and post-grant review (PGR) proceedings before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and routinely conducts IP due diligence on behalf of his clients (including freedom to operate, infringement and validity opinions), as well as for venture capitalists and other entities, including funds wishing to invest in intellectual property litigation. Mr. DeMatteo’s clients include companies in a variety of technical industries, including telecommunications, electronics, medical devices, robotics, computer software, firearms, and mechanical.  He is also admitted to the patent bar, having procured and prosecuted patents for several major corporations.

Prior to joining Taylor English, Mr. DeMatteo founded his own full-service intellectual property and litigation law firm based in New York.  He graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering, and—prior to attending law school—designed computer circuitry at well-established companies such as IBM, Aeroflex, AIL corporation, and Telephonics corporation. During this time, he helped design radar systems for the AWACS Navy aircraft, radar jamming circuitry for the B1-B bomber, and IBM’s PowerPC processors.  He was also the sole hardware designer of a cellular phone system produced by TransSky Corp.
