Matthew P. Cardosi



Pragmatic and good-humored, Matt advises domestic and international commercial property insurers in high-stakes claims, litigation, and industry regulation. Matt brings a commonsense approach to matters nationwide, advising clients on a variety of catastrophic losses spanning the gamut from wildfires and explosions to hurricanes, named storms, and floods. 

Most recently, Matt has and continues to be an integral component of the nationwide team representing insurers in COVID-19 business interruption claims and litigation under various commercial property forms. This includes numerous summary judgment victories and a precedent-setting win for the insurance industry in the Oklahoma Supreme Court. 

Beyond his core commercial property practice, Matt also represents insurers in claims and litigation arising under builder’s risk and third-party liability policies, as well as affirmative recovery efforts including subrogation and indemnification actions. 

Matt has also represented clients in a wide range of general commercial litigation, intellectual property, and regulatory matters in state and federal courts nationwide.   

Matt served as a judicial law clerk to the justices of the Rhode Island Superior Court before entering private practice.
