Matthew T. Jane focuses his practice in commercial litigation, construction law and real estate matters. He has extensive experience handling and managing complex and high exposure litigation and has served as external counsel to a variety of companies. In construction and real estate litigation matters, Matt’s clients have included owners, real estate developers, general contractors, subcontractors and suppliers. His expertise   includes construction liens, claims for delays and defective construction, design and engineering errors and omissions, land use and zoning matters, and condemnation/eminent domain. His successful litigation matters include representing a municipal school district in a complex, multi-party court litigation and arbitration involving defects in the construction of the district’s flagship high school.
