Matthew Gerend practices in the firm’s nationally recognized Complex Litigation Group, representing employees and other investors in litigation to enforce securities laws and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”).

Matt has represented plaintiffs in federal courts across the country to redress harms stemming from breaches of fiduciary duties, investment fraud, and other misconduct that threatens employees’ retirement security.

Matt became interested in the laws protecting retirement and pension benefits as a clerk with AARP Foundation Litigation, where he helped draft a number of amicus curiae briefs filed in the U.S. Supreme Court and U.S. Courts of Appeals regarding the proper interpretation and implementation of ERISA. During law school, Matt also worked as an intern with the Community Development Project at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. Matt believes that lawyers have a unique ability to effect social change, an ethic that has guided his work representing individuals and investors against those engaged in divisive and fraudulent practices.
