Matt is an experienced employment lawyer and also a Chartered Fellow of the CIPD. He is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association and the Industrial Law Society and a former Secretary of the West of England branch of the CIPD.

Matt started his legal career a little later in life, commencing his CILEX qualifications in his early thirties. At this point in his career, he had already started advising on HR and employment law matters but realised, in the increasingly litigious area of employment, that he needed (and wanted) to become a lawyer. Matt discovered the CILEX route to qualification which allowed him to continue to work in his established employment with a large employers organisation – and to raise a young family at the same time.

During his career, Matt became a lead lawyer for global manufacturing and engineering businesses. He now runs his own employment practice with Carbon Law Partners.

He advises on all matters relating to HR and employment with a particular interest in discrimination and diversity matters. Matt is also an experienced advocate, representing clients at Employment Tribunals.

He is also an avid user of LinkedIn as a platform to access and educate the wider population on employment matters having published a series of videos and podcasts on specialist topics.
