Matthew’s mandates include: acting as lead counsel on an arbitration in which he successfully argued that his corporate clients entered into contracts under economic duress and that the rates in those contracts should be set aside; and he is the firm’s lead counsel on a high-value business interruption insurance claim.


He maintains a strong commitment to pro bono activity and professional engagement. For example, he has frequently been an instructor in the Ryerson Law Practice Program’s litigation training sessions, has volunteered with Pro Bono Ontario’s help centre at the Superior Court in Toronto, has participated in the Divisional Court’s and Court of Appeal’s amicus programs, and has coached U of T moot teams. He has also taken on several pro bono cases including: acting for two retirees with dementia who had been left destitute as a result of their broker’s negligence; and acting for a recent immigrant who had been misled into guaranteeing a friend’s mortgage.
