Supporting Business Owners Each Step of the Way
When it comes to helping public and private companies involved in complicated transactions and other legal matters, Matt has the extensive experience it takes to provide the legal support they need. Matt has previously assisted clients involved in industries such as oil and gas, real estate, health care, and securities, but is prepared to leverage his deep knowledge and carefully honed skills to support businesses of any variety and size.
Throughout his 12 years of legal experience, Matt has facilitated the formation of strategic partnerships and joint ventures for clients at such crucial junctures. He has also served as a lead adviser for Fortune 100 companies that were involved in contract negotiations and joint venture formations that valued well into the millions. When clients sought to divest their business interests or dissolve a company, he provided the representation needed to oversee the proper division of company assets among its owners.
Before forming Duke Law Firm in 2020, Matt previously represented clients in the health care industry and enjoyed a career in health care business management at Methodist Healthcare System for nearly eight years. During this part of his career, he facilitated mergers and acquisitions, strategic planning and business development, service line and program development, oversaw board governance matters, and participated in physician recruitment and innovative projects.
Matt is regarded as a pioneer in his field, a change agent, and as a dynamic servant leader who can turn vision into action for his clients.
