Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with him.

Matt is an attorney in the Litigation and Dispute Resolution Practice Group and a member of the firm’s Workplace and Campus Investigations & Consulting and Coronavirus Legal Response Teams. As a former investigative journalist, Matt brings a passion for writing and investigation to his litigation and regulatory practice at Bernstein Shur, combining a thorough approach with a meticulous attention to detail. Since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, Matt has advised his clients on all aspects of the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) and other state and federal COVID-19 relief programs, including appeals, dispute resolution, and compliance.

Prior to joining Bernstein Shur, Matt practiced in white collar, tax controversy, and commercial litigation at Sidley Austin, where he honed his litigation and case management skills. While there, he represented companies and individuals facing complex litigation matters as well as investigations by federal regulatory and law enforcement agencies, including the Department of Justice, the Internal Revenue Service, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

A deliberate and conscientious advocate, Matt prides himself on his intellectually rigorous approach and going above and beyond for every client, every day.

But that’s not all. Matt is also very experienced in:

  • Preparing expert and fact witnesses for depositions and grand jury testimony
  • Drafting briefs and motions
  • Taking depositions

In his former life, Matt was:

  • An associate at Sidley Austin in Chicago
  • An investigative journalist in Mississippi and North Carolina
  • A judicial clerk for Senior Associate Justice Gary E. Hicks of the New Hampshire Supreme Court
  • A judicial intern for Judge Kermit V. Lipez of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit
