Matthew V. Bruno


Matt is a Partner in the firm’s Long Island office practicing in the Construction, Commercial and Corporate, and General Litigation Practice Groups.  He has over a decade of experience defending individuals and corporations in complex litigation matters.  He is attuned to the need to both control costs and curb potential liability exposure.  Matt looks are alternative remedies of early claim resolution by employing ADR, mediation and early resolution discussion with counsel.  Matthew is equally comfortable litigating in both the various and diverse counties with New York State and Federal Court system.

Matt routinely represents clients on high exposure New York Labor Law matters.  He is particularly aware of risk transfer through indemnification and insurance provisions which facilitate risk and exposure shifting to secondary entities.  Importantly, Matt knows when cases should be tried and, perhaps more importantly when they should be resolved without the uncertainty of a jury trial.

Matt was a member of The Catholic University Columbus School of Law’s Thurgood Marshall Inn of Court.  He was also a member of the law school’s community legal clinic where he represented members of the surrounding community in the District of Columbia.  He was also a clerk for the retired Judge Lee Satterfield, Chief Judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.  A graduate of Cornell University, Matt remains actively involved in various alumni associations and meets with applicants through Cornell’s CAAAN program every year.  He has also been honored as a New York Metro Rising Star every year from 2013-2017.

When not working, Matt enjoys spending as much time as possible with his wife and two boys.  He enjoys family ski trips to Vermont and watching his boys on the lacrosse, soccer, and football fields.  He is also an avid paddle tennis player and golfs whenever he gets the chance.
