After studying law at Bristol, Matthew qualified as a solicitor in 1991 and has since developed a strong in-depth understanding of resolving commercial disputes and the impact of recessions across business sectors. Matthew has always acted for national and international high profile companies or well known high net worth individuals.
Matthew specialises in resolving difficult commercial issues which include; banking litigation, international arbitration, professional negligence (including claims involving solicitors, surveyors, architects and auditors), corporate recovery, commercial agents regulations, sports finance, sport regulatory work, and commercial sports business.
Often the complex disputes involve extensive documentation which is managed with off-site state of the art IT document management systems. Matthew has also been involved in many Court of Appeal cases covering topics from Limitation Periods, Causation, and Entitlement to Costs.
When relaxing, Matthew enjoys listening to music, reading, and watching films. He also likes good food, cycling, sailing, and getting lost abroad.
