Matt R. Hubbard


As a construction and business litigator, Matt represents owners, developers, contractors, engineers and architects regarding construction claims and business disputes, performance and payment bonds, mechanic’s liens, and construction contracts (preparation, negotiation and enforcement). His practice focuses on many litigation and transactional issues of importance to the construction client including: government and private contract claims, construction defects, breach of warranty, bid protests, claims for delay, differing site conditions, extra work, Miller Act, payment and performance bond claims, and mechanic’s lien claims. He also has extensive experience in claim analysis and drafting and negotiating construction and design contracts, government contracts, bid documents and other related documents for all phases of public and private construction projects, including the preparation of required notices and correspondence to sureties, owners and construction managers in order to preserve and pursue the claims of the construction client.

Matt lectures on risk management issues and assists clients in establishing project management procedures, such as the proper documentation of project files, to minimize the risk of litigation or arbitration. 

Matt also has substantial experience representing financial institutions against lender liability lawsuits alleging violations of, inter alia, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Truth in Lending Act, Consumer Financial Protection Act, Home Affordable Modification Program, and Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, claims for breach of fiduciary duty, negligent misrepresentation, fraud, and breach of contract. He also has significant banking experience handling loan enforcement and bankruptcy cases, receiverships, and commercial real estate and personal property foreclosures.
