Troutman Sanders LLP

With a background in landscape architecture, Matthew Dials primarily represents clients in construction and development matters, advising them on transactional and litigation issues by applying his experience as a project participant and as counsel for owners, design professionals and contractors.

Matthew works on a variety of transactional, pre-claim and litigation matters arising from the planning and construction of projects across the United States. His focus is on helping clients identify and resolve issues that may arise in the contracting, design, construction or post-construction phases so that they can continue to focus on existing and new business opportunities.

Matthew also assisted in the early planning and design of Related’s Tuxedo Reserve, a 1,250-acre mixed-use project located in Orange County.

During law school, Matthew was involved in moot court and in mock trial, and he completed multiple internships for both private and public organizations, including the city of Atlanta. He was president of the Environmental Law Society and a Dean’s Award recipient for community service.
