Matt Geiger is a business trial attorney with almost 25 years experience in Kansas City courtrooms.  Matt simplifies complex cases for judges and juries with clear narratives, compelling themes and effective technology.  Most of his cases involve ownership disputes in private companies, litigation over the purchase or sale of a business, and C-level executive compensation and liability.  Matt is immersed in the capital markets with an understanding of agriculture, banking, business services, construction, energy, health care, insurance, manufacturing, medical equipment, pharmaceuticals, real estate development, specialty retail, telecommunications, transportation, and wealth management/RIAs.

Matt also has experience in all types of contract actions and business torts, shareholder rights and remedies, officer and director liability, employment claims, trade secrets and restrictive covenants, unfair competition, insurance coverage, and family wealth litigation.  He has tried three cases to verdict in Kansas and one to judgment in Missouri over the enforcement of handshake agreements, representing clients on both sides of the issue.  He has advised boards of directors, audit committees and other law firms in the discreet management of internal investigations, and he has represented clients facing regulatory, civil and white-collar criminal charges – all at the same time.  This diverse legal experience allows Matt to develop winning strategies for his clients and solutions to their problems inside and outside the courtroom.
