More about Matthew

Matthew works with ship-owners, NVOCs and transport operators, cargo interests and insurers on logistics and supply chain related disputes and projects. Matthew's dispute resolution and litigation practice includes claims arising out of the carriage of goods, which encompasses defence work, cargo recovery, and salvage and general average claims; representing ports and terminal operators on third party liability, property damage and business interruption claims; and marine insurance policy and commercial disputes.

Matthew also provides advisory services to transport operators on standard terms and conditions and contracts of carriage, and to insurers on products and policy wordings.

Matthew has been ranked in Chambers UK 2014, 2015 and 2016 as an 'Associate to watch'. He is described as being "an eager and very intelligent lawyer who won't stop until he finds a solution". Clients say that, "He knows the industry and the way it works".
