Matt was Called to the Bar in 1995. Prior to being Called, and for a period afterwards, he
worked in The City for Kleinwort Benson, an Investment Bank. Following successful
completion of the Bar Vocational Course and thereafter Pupillage he gained a Tenancy at
Chambers in London, from where he has practiced ever since.
Initially his practice encompassed all Common Law areas but, in common with the rest of
the Bar, over time the areas in which he practices have diminished as his focus on specialist
areas has increased. Therefore, for the vast majority of his time at the Bar his practice has
centred on the area of “Regulatory Law” encompassing a number of professional fields, with
some associated spin-off practice in linked areas.
