Matt serves as chair of the Davis & Kuelthau’s Litigation, Appellate, Commercial Litigation and Employment Litigation Practices. He represents clients in all aspects of litigation over commercial contracts, construction disputes, real property claims, and intellectual property matters. Matt helps plaintiffs and defendants achieve desirable results both in and out of court. His primary client base includes small to mid-size businesses, construction companies, and municipalities. He also works with individuals who have contract, construction and high-fee disputes.
Matt’s most extensive experience is in the area of construction litigation. He recently helped one construction company settle a multi-million dollar dispute with a municipality, reaching a great result for both sides before expensive discovery. For another construction company, Matt defended allegations of negligence, breach of contract, and fraud from the initial pleadings to and through a 6-week jury trial. And in a third case, Matt won dismissal based on the contract’s forum selection clause and the doctrine of claim preclusion.
