Matthew Cueter

Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith LLP

Matthew P. Cueter is a partner in the New York office of Lewis Brisbois and a member of the General Liability Practice. Mr. Cueter focuses his practice in the areas of construction defect, premises liability, product liability and labor law litigation.

Notable cases he has handled include an alleged $100 million dollar property damage loss at a housing complex that was claimed to have been riddled with water leaks and allegedly had numerous other problems. Lewis Brisbois was asked to appear in the case after nearly eight years of litigation had already taken place.

Mr. Cueter was asked to represent the window installer. Its prior counsel had been disbarred several years before Lewis Brisbois became involved in the case. Eventually a favorable settlement was negotiated at a significant discount to the client.

Mr. Cueter also recently defended a property owner in a wrongful death action involving a fire. Plaintiff claimed that defective wiring caused the subject fire and pointed to an alleged building code violation. Plaintiff sought several million dollars.

Defendant successfully argued to the Supreme Court judge that the fire was not the result of defective wiring in the apartment and that there was no evidence of negligence by the defendant property owner.

Plaintiff attempted to make this case a battle of experts. The defendants were able to convince the judge that plaintiff’s experts’ opinions were conclusory, speculative and could not be relied upon. This case is currently on appeal.
