Matt’s practice focuses on mergers and acquisitions, private equity matters, and general corporate counseling with an emphasis on transactions occurring in the middle market. He has wide-ranging experience in the corporate and securities practice, advising clients on buying or selling a controlling interest of a business, leveraged buyouts, strategic transactions, minority equity investments, equity restructurings in the context of distressed debt, and general corporate governance issues.

Matt has served as a lead associate in a variety of complex transactions such as stock and asset deals, mergers, debt-for-equity swaps, and co-investments, including high-profile matters like the attempted acquisition of a prominent, and financially distressed Atlantic City casino, and the sale of a private equity fund-of-funds to a global asset management company.

Prior to joining Mintz Levin, Matt worked as an associate at Proskauer Rose LLP.  Before entering private practice in 2013, he served as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney at the Justice Department where he litigated matters as first-chair counsel for the United States, and as a Presidential Management Fellow for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
