Matthew established his legal expertise with three of the nation’s largest law firms in their corporate/commercial, intellectual property and franchising practices.
Matthew founded Rouse Lawyers in 2006 with the goal of providing premium commercial legal services to Australian businesses and importantly to demonstrate the value of strategic legal advice. The firms client’s now include many national and international businesses across a range of industries as well many small to medium and family run enterprises.
Matthew wants to service clients that value his input in all major business decisions and transactions, in other words, client’s that view Matthew and his firm as a business partner, not just a lawyer.
Matthew firmly believes that once a client views a law firm and its legal services and tasks as part of their long term business plan, that the firm can demonstrate its real contribution to the bottom line during the business life cycle.
Matthew leads the corporate and commercial practice group at Rouse Lawyers. Matthew has over 17 years’ experience in commercial matters, and that experience ranges from start-up companies to billion dollar public company transactions.
Matthew specialises in mid-market mergers & acquisitions. These businesses tend to be larger private or family owned businesses.
