Matthew joined Schwabe’s IP litigation group from a Portland IP boutique and, before that, a commercial litigation and regulatory firm in Arkansas serving the natural resources and electric utility industries. In Arkansas, Matthew was a close member of the outside appellate team that won cert and then unanimous decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court (8-0) and the Federal Circuit (3-0 on remand) in the case of Arkansas Game & Fish Commission v. United States, 133 S. Ct. 511 (2012), a significant Fifth Amendment takings claim for timber and habitat.
