Matthew Metzger represents clients ranging from individuals and their families injured or killed in catastrophic accidents to companies involved in complex litigation and transactions. His representation of injured individuals, class members in complex litigation, and select businesses provides a unique perspective unavailable to attorneys who focus solely on one type of litigation. Matt’s simultaneous emphasis on pragmatic, strategic and creative thinking often leads to unique and satisfying resolutions for his clients. When settlement fails, however, Matt aggressively pursues his client’s claims through litigation and trial.
Matt’s extensive experience representing individuals and their families includes catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, and class action litigation, where he has obtained millions of dollars for his clients in settlements and judgments.
His business litigation practice includes representing clients, typically plaintiffs and sometimes on a contingency fee basis, in breach of contract actions, business tort claims, and intellectual property matters.
Previously, Matt was an attorney at Keating Muething & Klekamp, a large corporate law firm where he represented clients in various business transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital financings. He also has experience in project finance, equipment finance and real estate matters. He received his JD from University of Cincinnati College of Law, magna cum laude, and his BBA in Economics from The University of Iowa, with distinction, where he was a varsity, scholarship athlete. In his spare time Matt designs and makes furniture and art, and has exhibited his work throughout the United States and internationally (his website for his art is metzgerfinearts.com). Matt, his wife and two boys live in Cincinnati.
