Excellence with Cost Effective Results
MATTHEW E. FURSE
Matthew Furse was not born in Texas, but he got here as fast as he could. A native of the United Kingdom (Sussex to be precise), he trained as a Barrister (Trial Lawyer) and was called to the Bar of England and Wales in 2012. He met his American wife in London where they lived for 6 years until the lure of the people, weather, and food of Texas became too strong to resist. After being admitted as an attorney in Texas in September 2017, he joined Glast, Phillips & Murray, where he continues to grow his list of clients.
Matthew’s litigation practice is rooted in the fields of business and property disputes. He acts for individuals, corporations, partnerships and trusts in a range of complex matters, including shareholder and partnership disputes, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, property ownership, construction, professional malpractice, trade secrets, and interference with contractual relations. A powerful presence in court, Matthew relishes the opportunity to take cases to trial and can use the same robust advocacy skills to represent clients in negotiation, mediation, and arbitration as required. He is licensed to appear in all courts in the State of Texas and is admitted in the United States District and Bankruptcy Courts for the Northern and Eastern Federal Districts of Texas.
Before moving to the U.S., Matthew practiced as a commercial and property litigator in London. He maintains his license in the U.K. and is an International Consultant Lawyer with the firm of Jamieson Alexander (www.jamiesonalexander.co.uk) in London. Accordingly, Matthew can act for U.S. clients on either side of the Atlantic and provide access to the full range of courts in the U.K., including the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA). He can also advise U.S. clients regarding Mareva freezing injunctions, and the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
In his spare time, Matthew enjoys a diverse range of interests from Cooking and Opera, Shooting and Country Pursuits, Rugby (playing and coaching), NFL/College Football (watching), and Powerlifting.
