MATTHEW R. BARRETT, a member of HMB's Litigation Group, represents clients involved in various business disputes in both state and federal courts. Matt has successfully represented banks and financial institutions in creditors' rights disputes, in commercial foreclosures, and in claims involving the fraudulent transfer of assets. Having also represented small and mid-size businesses and their owners, Matt understands that every client's circumstances are unique and cannot be solved by a "one-size-fits-all" approach. Instead, each client deserves legal services that are tailored to resolving his or her own complex problems. To that end, active listening, excellent communication, dedication, and the ability to find creative solutions are essential to his practice.
Matt graduated from Loyola University of Chicago School of Law with a certificate in taxation. In law school, he participated in the moot court program and was a member of its board. He won Best Brief Award in the National Tax Moot Court Competition and received Loyola's Friedman Award for Excellence in Advocacy.
Outside of work, Matt is a volunteer coach for Loyola's tax law moot court team.
