Matthew Costello is an associate in Nixon Peabody’s Complex Commercial Disputes practice group. He is an experienced litigator and represents clients in complex litigation matters at both the state and federal level.
I represent clients in all stages of complex litigation and counsel clients in anticipation of litigation. In helping clients manage risk in navigating complex business matters, I strive to resolve disputes without resorting to litigation whenever possible. My focus is on efficiently helping clients achieve their desired results and business goals.
Before joining Nixon Peabody, Matthew was a litigation associate at a boutique law firm and a top 50 Am Law firm, where he was a summer associate. Matthew previously served as a judicial law clerk to the Hon. William E. Smith of the U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island and the Hon. Gilbert V. Indeglia of the Rhode Island Supreme Court. During law school, Matthew was a judicial intern for the Hon. Timothy S. Hillman of the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts and a legal intern for the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts.
As clients continue to resist rising litigation costs, I see continued efficiencies in the practice of law and an increased demand for alternative-fee arrangements. I also see continued use of virtual court proceedings.
