Matt Bush is a senior associate in the Complex Litigation group and the Supreme Court and Appellate group. He represents clients in cases involving a wide range of subject areas, including intellectual property, employment, class actions, and products liability.
Matt specializes in high-stakes commercial litigation, devising case strategy and handling all stages of the most complex matters from initial filing, to trial, to appeal. Matt's appellate background gives him the unique perspective to advise not just on the best strategy to win the critical motion or win the trial, but also to ensure the case is properly set up to win the appeal. He has argued numerous motions and appeals in state and federal courts across the country, including motions to dismiss, motions for summary judgment, Daubert motions, motions in limine, directed verdict motions, and jury instructions. He has been a part of multiple trial teams in cases that have gone to verdict and second chaired two arguments before the United States Supreme Court.
Matt also represented Microsoft in a $230 million employment discrimination class action case. The Court denied a class certification motion attempting to certify a class of 8,600 female IT employees and engineers who claimed discrimination in pay and promotion.
