Matt is our head of Finance and joined Family Law Group in January 2019. He works from our Nottingham office and specialises in management accounts and all areas of finance, accounting transactions and process improvements within a finance environment.
With a finance career extending to over 18 years, Matt has also worked within the legal sector for 8 years and has a good understanding of SAR. Matt was very keen to join Family Law Group having previously enjoyed working for a law firm at the very start of his career. There was an attraction in being able to return to the legal sector and bring 12 years of experience with it to make a positive impact.
Matt has a wealth of finance experience including 7 years as a Finance Manager for a Nottingham based law firm and 5 years at Citi Bank as the Head of Banking Control, alongside extensive experience in finance operations and process improvement.
Having gained a degree in mathematics and sports science at Liverpool University in 1996, his first role was a junior role in finance and he enjoyed it so much that he decided to continue his career within finance. Within this first role as a purchase ledger clerk he soon progressed within the firm and started studying for his finance qualification at the same time.
Matt brings a pragmatic approach to working with teams and has learned how to get the best out of people. He is an effective people manager and knows how to motivate teams both large and small in sometimes demanding and changeable environments. Not only does Matt enjoy the analytical side of financial problem solving, but also the development and coaching of staff to help them to become better in their roles and strengthen their skills.
Outside of his career, Matt enjoys spending time with his twin boys, with cricket playing a big part in all of their lives and spare time. They also like to cook together and create new meals and menus. He enjoys sport in general, both watching and taking part in it. Lastly, he has recently joined the gym in order to lose weight and get fit in time for his birthday in June.
