Matthew Brothers and Pepper and Brothers, PLLC
Matthew: “Right. Well, I grew up in New England, graduated from Boston College in 1990, moved down to Nashville, Tennessee. went to law school at Vanderbilt, graduated in 1993, stayed here and ultimately married a southern girl and I‘m still here. I started out doing litigation and did primarily litigation through about 1998 when I started doing transactional work. Once I started doing transactional work I had absolutely no desire to go back to litigation. I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the process, enjoyed everything about it so I’ve been doing business acquisitions, business formations for about 15, 17 years… (continues)
We do primarily commercial and corporate transactions and litigations and… and my partner, Ross Pepper has most of the litigation work. I still keep my hand in some. We have associates working for us who do both litigation and transactional work. I do primarily transactional work, business acquisitions, some commercial real estate, bank loan closings, commercial leasing, things like that… (continues)
It’s good because we’re a smaller practice and we have that and people can come to us. We’re not necessarily trying to undercut the fees of bigger firms, but we can operate a little more efficiently. So we do offer a pretty wide range of services and people spend a lot less money and generally get more efficient service. For example, if there is a transaction I might be involved for almost every aspect of the transaction, except for the sad of the actual listing of the business, some of the tax planning. Whereas at a big firm you might have a transactional attorney, an employment attorney, a commercial real estate or leasing attorney and you could have four or five attorneys working on the same project when it’s not always necessary to do that… (continues)
Exactly. If it’s a $100 million dollar merger, something like that, I understand why you need a team, but if it’s a transaction that’s 25 or 30 million or less, then it’s not always necessary. So I think we provide pretty efficient service.
