Mateusz “Matt” J. Kulesza helps clients in the machine learning, enterprise software, autonomous vehicle, and robotics industries broadly protect their innovations by developing patent strategies, and preparing and prosecuting patent applications. In addition to securing patent protection, Mr. Kulesza supports clients in IP asset acquisitions by assessing and valuating organizations’ patent portfolios. He also develops and drafts freedom to operate opinions and represents clients in inter partes reviews (IPRs).

His background in electrical engineering and computer science allows Mr. Kulesza to easily comprehend complex innovations and better advise clients on patentability, infringement, and patent validity. Prior to joining MBHB, Mr. Kulesza worked at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, where he designed and implemented a control system for a wearable, gait-assisting robot, and optimized device control and performance based on analysis of human biomechanics. Mr. Kulesza’s academic work at the intersection of electrical engineering, computer science, and electromechanical devices allows Mr. Kulesza to assist clients with a wide range of technologies.

Outside of work, Mr. Kulesza enjoys cycling, playing guitar, gardening, and spending time with his family in the great state of Texas.
