Matthew is Senior Partner and Chief Executive of our bespoke volume services business Hugh James Involegal LLP. Matthew was managing partner of Hugh James from 1999 to 2010. Prior to becoming the Managing Partner, Matthew was a partner in the Commercial Property and Banking and Finance Departments.

Matthew was responsible for setting up the firm’s first volume business, the Lender Services Department, in 1999, in response to demand from several national lenders requiring a volume financing capability.

Matthew went on to establish a number of volume processing operations in various services throughout the firm, and eventually amalgamated these operations into a separate Managed Services Division before transferring the whole into the separate Involegal business. This operates as the specialist volume legal services of the Hugh James partners, acting for major clients from the financial services and corporate sectors across the UK.
