Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the opening of Dowd Scheffel PLLC, our new law firm
focusing on intellectual property, civil litigation, and appeals.

Over the years, we have worked with and for many of you. Whether advancing client
rights in court or counseling businesses to advance their intellectual property goals, it's
been our privilege to help you and your businesses in resolving legal disputes and
creating legal solutions.

For others, we've had the privilege of sitting across the table from you. We've won
some and lost some. But in all cases, we thoroughly enjoyed battling against the best
attorneys in the nation.

We hope to continue these relationships we've developed. Over the past year and a
half, Matt successfully started Dowd PLLC. Robert recently started his own
practice. Next came the opportunity for the two of us to collaborate since we had first
tried cases and handled appeals together at Wiley Rein.

As former Federal Circuit clerks with over 35 years of combined experience, we do

many things very well, but we don't do everything. Litigating at the PTAB or the Federal
Circuit? Yes. Counsel for your Hatch-Waxman case? Yes. Lead counsel for your
billion-dollar ITC case? Not yet . . .

We look forward to talking with each of you as we grow.

our firm.
