Matthew A. (Matt) Martel has nearly 20 years of experience representing financial institution clients in a broad range of disputes including securities litigation, litigation arising from mergers and acquisitions, government and self-regulatory organization investigations and enforcement actions, and bankruptcy matters.
He works with commercial and investment banks, trustee banks and other custodial institutions, investment advisers, broker-dealers, hedge funds, and other private equity funds. Clients value equally his creative approaches to litigation avoidance and his ability to obtain successful outcomes in high-stakes litigation.
Matt has represented financial institutions in matters involving the SEC, CFTC, CFPB, OCC, Department of Treasury, Department of Commerce, FINRA, and state securities and consumer regulators. He successfully tried a case on behalf of a management buyout group involved in a going private transaction for a financial services firm in which the plaintiffs sought statutory appraisal of their shares.
Matt also represented the indenture trustee in favorable outcomes in federal court actions in which equity holders challenged the trustee’s foreclosures on aircraft subject to leases with debtor airlines and obtained a multimillion dollar judgment for a client in the electronics contract manufacturing industry following summary judgment hearing in a bankruptcy court adversary proceeding.
Matt regularly speaks at financial industry events and has written articles on a range of topics, including subprime litigation faced by mortgage lenders in bankruptcy.
