Summary

Matthew is an associate in the Energy Practice Group. He has a diverse energy law practice, representing Midwestern utility clients in a variety of commercial transactions including, for example, infrastructure development, EPC contracts, power purchase agreements, large generator interconnection, equipment and materials, software, construction services, and professional services.  He has worked on matters in all types of generation – renewable, fossil, and nuclear – and has supported the procurement, siting, and regulatory approvals for electric and gas transmission and distribution infrastructure.

Matthew’s representation of utilities in commercial matters is informed by his work on numerous contested cases before public utilities commissions, and he understands how the need for cost recovery must inform utility decisions to achieve efficient outcomes.

Prior to joining Taft, Matthew was an energy attorney in Boston, where he represented clients in proceedings before the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities and Energy Facilities Siting Board.
