Matt enjoys bringing his broad spectrum of experience to bear for sophisticated real estate industry clients. His insight into real estate development, acquisitions, financing, joint ventures, and leasing deals comes from extensive experience across asset classes in multiple jurisdictions. What sets Matt apart, however, is his years-long foundation across multiple areas of property law.

Matt is a partner in BFKN’s Real Estate Group. Matt’s deep and varied transactional experience is backed by first-chair work in real estate and land use litigation and administrative proceedings, foreclosures, and workouts for lenders and borrowers, the representation of public and private entities in bond issuances (including special district and homeowner association bonds), and the real estate aspects of wind and solar projects.

Matt applies his experience to clients’ bread-and-butter deals, as well as their ventures that feel like a stair-stepper contest. He values his longstanding client relationships and enjoys building close relationships between BFKN and his clients’ internal teams.

Matt is currently based in BFKN’s Chicago office, but he has worked in Southern California, New Mexico, and Jackson, Wyoming.
