Matthew J. Fischer
There are people who believe that Matt Fischer is the person for whom the term “multi-tasking” was invented. Others claim he’s the virtual eye of the storm, that calm and rational center where order is pulled out of chaos. So, although there is some disagreement about the exact nature of his superpowers, most agree that he has a few.
Thanks to his calm demeanor and dogged work ethic, Matt has often been called upon to resolve cases under difficult and challenging circumstances. In the courtroom and at the negotiation table, he is known for being courteous and professional and as relentless as waves pounding against a beach.
Matt understands that the path to a favorable resolution requires a formidable defense. He is a strong advocate for early and effective resolution backed by a credible and effective trial option. Clients and opponents both recognize his steadfast and powerful approach. He is frequently called upon by in-house counsel to partner with them on the design, coordination and implementation of national strategies, as well as the budgeting and management of defense costs. This unique combination of skills has led clients to ask Matt to prepare and defend their C-suite executives, key employees and corporate representatives at trial and deposition.
Well-versed and experienced in the field of alternative dispute resolution, Matt has served as an arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association. He has crafted creative, positive and workable settlement agreements, sometimes as specially retained settlement counsel, even after a long and difficult litigation process has made settlement unlikely.
