Matthew Raynor

Senior Associate

Matthew joined Bristows as an associate in 2012. He specialises in intellectual property litigation with a particular focus on patent litigation in the technology sector.

Matthew has a breadth of experience in handling cases in the telecommunications, computer hardware and software, virtual reality, inertial navigation and LED lighting sectors. Matthew has a physics degree and finds his scientific background invaluable for understanding the complex technical issues that underlie many intellectual property disputes.

Other significant areas of Matthew’s practice include SEP litigation and FRAND issues, licensing strategy, freedom to operate advice and patent validity analysis. As many of the cases which he works on have an international element to them, Matthew is often involved in coordinating litigation before the UK courts with parallel proceedings in Europe, the USA and international patent offices.

Matthew is a member of AIPPI and is a regular contributor to the CIPA Journal and the Kluwer Patent Blog.
