Matthew joined JHA in 2018 as an Associate, having qualified as a solicitor in 2013. He undertakes high-value and complex international arbitration, litigation and investigations. His work crosses a number of sectors, with recent cases including a banking arbitration under the LCIA rules, investor-State disputes under the ICSID Convention, a contract claim concerning the supply of telecommunication services in Latin America, and a state aid complaint arising from the differential taxation of international financial institutions.

A significant portion of Matthew’s work, however, involves insurance and reinsurance disputes, with a particular focus on complex coverage and liability claims arising from property, construction, products and cyber losses. Recent experience includes advising on an international data breach, and various cases involving Bermuda Form cover for mass tort claims in the US.

Prior to joining JHA, Matthew worked in the London office of an international law firm.
