Matthew qualified as a Solicitor in 2015 and joined Birketts in 2023 as a Legal Director in our Commercial Real Estate Team. He specialises in real estate based financial and asset structuring, large-scale development projects, and energy capture and storage.

Matthew has extensive experience advising clients across the whole gamut of these areas, and has led on the acquisition, financing/refinancing, management, and disposal of major assets by institutional funds and private equity vehicles, along with the structuring and integration of corporate entities required for efficient project implementation.
