Matthew De Lucia
Matt focuses on representing companies in the realm of toxic tort litigation. He actively engages in all aspects of a case, guiding it from inception to resolution. Matt possesses specialized knowledge within this field and his adeptness extends to pre-trial activities, including crafting pleadings, overseeing discovery, scrutinizing medical records, evaluating cases, conducting and defending deposition, formulating and presenting motions before the court, and conducting thorough trial preparations.
Prior to joining the firm, Mr. De Lucia worked as an associate at Maroney O’Connor LLP, in Manhattan, performing all aspects of personal injury litigation leading to jury trial in motor vehicle and subrogation property damage cases. His responsibilities included conducting depositions, drafting and arguing motions, appearing for Court conferences, and case settlement negotiations.
Mr. De Lucia, a registered Patent Agent, also previously worked at Richardson and Rosow, LLC, a boutique firm in Manhattan that specializes in Intellectual Property Law. His primary work involved researching prior art ranging from issued pharmaceutical patents to chemistry theses for the purposes of both patent prosecution and ANDA-litigation. He provided written analyses of such prior art in both brief and comprehensive forms, and prepared concise memoranda delineating grounds on which multiple generic companies infringe a patent-in-suit.
On a personal note, Matthew enjoys the energy of living and working in New York City, and attends theatre, concerts, and sporting events.
