Meet Matthew Moy, Associate Solicitor, Commercial Litigation

I regularly advise both claimants and defendants from the outset of matters through to settlement, mediation or trial. The work is diverse and varied and I enjoy the challenges that this brings with it.

My clients often include large corporate companies, small to medium-sized businesses (SMEs), owner-managed businesses (OMBs) and high net worth individuals. I advise across various business sectors including:

  • construction
  • e-commerce
  • hospitality
  • logistics
  • manufacturing
  • pharmaceuticals.

Commercial litigation is a technical and wide-ranging area. Each matter often involves consideration of multiple different issues. My expertise includes:

  • commercial contracts
  • commercial property litigation
  • intellectual property disputes
  • warranty and indemnity claims
  • professional negligence
  • restrictive covenants in employment contracts
  • shareholder and partnership disputes.

Asking the right questions ensures I take effective instructions, quickly establishing the issues and confidently advising on the action to take. I always place commercial considerations at the forefront to deliver pragmatic solutions and advice. This approach provides a seamless service for clients who require comprehensive teamwork – an example could be dispute resolution and commercial debt recovery.

Outside of work

I enjoy city breaks, eating out, listening to music, reading and watching films. Also, I enjoy keeping fit by playing football, tennis and attending at the gym. I am a (long suffering) supporter of Liverpool football club and am thoroughly enjoying the recent success that the club has experienced!
