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 six years until the lure of the people, weather, and food of Texas became too strong to resist. After passing the Texas Bar Exam, he joined Glast, Phillips & Murray, and continues to represent both U.S. and international clients.
An experienced civil litigation attorney, Matthew has successfully represented clients throughout all stages of trial and appellate proceedings. He acts for individuals, corporations, partnerships, and trusts in a range of complex litigation matters. Matthew has an acute understanding of the emotional and financial investment clients make when they become involved in litigation. He prides himself on being highly responsive and accessible to clients, as well as being able to explain complex legal concepts in straightforward language.
A powerful presence in court, Matthew relishes the opportunity to fight in his client’s corner at trial in either state or federal court. He also understands that discretion can sometimes be the better part of valor and can use his robust advocacy skills to facilitate the resolution of disputes through negotiation, mediation, or arbitration.
Matthew also practices with the firm of Jamieson Alexander (www.jamiesonalexander.co.uk) in London, principally in the fields of commercial, property, probate, bankruptcy, and data protection litigation. Matthew can therefore 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 and represent U.S. clients in international probate and bankruptcy matters, Mareva worldwide freezing injunctions, and issues involving the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
In his spare time, Matthew enjoys a diverse range of interests including cooking, opera, shooting and country pursuits, rugby, NFL/College Football, and powerlifting.
