Matthew D. Rowen*


Matt’s practice focuses on solving complex legal issues wherever they arise.  Matt has developed winning strategies and written successful motions and briefs in a wide array of complicated, high-profile cases at every level of the federal court system and in multiple state courts.  At the Supreme Court, Matt has written dozens of successful cert-stage and merits briefs.  Matt’s cutting-edge work has been recognized by the American Lawyer and Legal 500 U.S.  Matt’s matters have addressed administrative law, antitrust, bankruptcy, federal jurisdiction, intellectual property, labor and employment, products liability, res judicata, securities law, and statutory interpretation. Matt maintains a robust pro bono practice, through which he has helped wrongly convicted criminal defendants secure their freedom.

Outside of Clement & Murphy, Matt is an adjunct lecturer at Georgetown University, where he teaches classes on constitutional law and the Supreme court. Matt is an avid, long-suffering fan of his hometown Angels and his adopted Arsenal Football Club.  When he is not thinking about the law or watching sports, Matt enjoys spending time with his wife and golden retriever in D.C.
