Matthew qualified in November 1989 and, after gaining some years of valuable experience in commercial and property based litigation, he has gone on to practice extensively in a broad range of commercial, corporate and property matters. His breadth of expertise and huge depth of experience enables him to advise clients on a broad range of legal matters.
Matthew advises clients in relation to all manner of corporate transactions, commercial agreements and problems, and is adept at identifying solutions to difficult issues and, when necessary, employing sophisticated creative techniques which enable clients to achieve the best possible results.
His property work encompasses the full range of commercial transactions, from options, joint ventures, site acquisitions, development and investment work, through to disposals and advice on property-related taxes and tax planning, including VAT and stamp duty land tax planning.
The broad corporate and commercial work undertaken by Matthew extends to include not only pure transactional and traditional corporate finance type work, but also a wide range of commercial ventures, including intellectual property licensing.
Matthew’s experience of commercial litigation means that he is well placed to identify the issues which need to be addressed in commercial ventures and constantly reinforces his desire to be precise in the nature of his advice and in the drafting of what can often be very bespoke forms of agreements.
Where required, Matthew works closely with other personnel in the practice, especially in matters where intellectual property is involved and licence agreements need to be prepared or reviewed.
His versatility means that he is able to help ensure that clients keep their legal costs to a sensible level, by avoiding wasted time and what can otherwise be a duplication of costs.
