Settlements & Testimonials

Matthew J. Barnes represents small, mid-sized and large national organizations in pursuit and defense of the clients’ construction litigation claims, business litigation claims, and corresponding transactions, which claims often encompass a broad array of industries including commercial real estate developers, medical practices, construction companies, not-for-profit organizations, trust and estates, and the service industry.


Prior to joining the Firm, Matthew gained valuable experience as a tax lawyer in the Mergers and Acquisitions group of a preeminent global accounting/financial services firm in New York. His extensive background in public accounting, coupled with his experience as a tax lawyer, gives Matthew a unique perspective in the context of commercial litigation. With this perspective, Matthew is a very valuable asset for a client in the process of litigating business dissolutions, partnership disputes, fraud and business torts, and constructive trust claims.


In addition to those business-related litigations, Matthew has proved to be the “go to” counsel of choice to spearhead complex labor law, lien law, breach of contract and related claims in the construction industry. Matthew regularly litigates claims in the public and private construction sector involving termination, non-payment, claims for extra work, acceleration or delay, as well as lien law foreclosure and surety rights.
