Matt Veech joined the firm's Litigation Group in July 2005. His practice is devoted to representing a vast array of clients, from individuals to large corporations, in a variety of employment and business-related disputes.
Matt has represented clients in matters relating to enforcement of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, misappropriation of trade secrets and proprietary information, breach of fiduciary duties and breach of contract, shareholder oppression, and related business torts. He has also represented clients in employment-related claims of discrimination, harassment and retaliation under Title VII, the ADA, the ADEA, the FMLA and the Texas Labor Code, as well as wage and overtime claims under the FLSA and Texas Payday Act.
Matt works directly with clients to navigate the myriad of employment-law related issues faced day-to-day by anyone operating a business — from internal investigations, discipline, counseling and terminations, to development of employee policies and procedures. Prior to joining the firm, he worked for almost six years at a large, national law firm where his focus was primarily employment and mass toxic tort litigation.
Matt began his legal career as a briefing attorney for the Honorable Adele Hedges on the Court of Appeals for the First District of Texas. While in law school, he served as an articles editor for the South Texas Law Review. He uses the skills gained from these experiences to effectively evaluate the issues faced by his clients and to develop practical solutions to their issues.
