Vital expertise for what matters.

Recognizing the importance that farmers, agricultural businesses, community banks and other small businesses play in supporting and sustaining rural communities, Matt has focused his practice on serving and protecting the interests of these businesses. Matt, a partner at Gislason & Hunter, regularly represents these clients in administrative and regulatory proceedings, civil litigation and appeals involving a variety of disputes, including environmental and permitting issues, land use and zoning issues, contractual disputes, corporate governance and shareholder rights and collection and bankruptcy.

Outside of the courtroom, Matt assists clients with issues involving business formation and governance, acquisitions and sales, financing, regulatory compliance, food safety and animal welfare, marketing, trademarks and other transactions and business issues.
