Matthew Tomsic

Matthew Tomsic is an associate who practices with the firm’s business, civil litigation and bankruptcy groups.

Matt’s litigation practice focuses on commercial and business litigation of all types, including civil litigation relating to the enforcement of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements; ownership of proprietary technology and information as well as trade secret disputes; unfair trade practices; fiduciary duties; business torts; contract disputes; Uniform Commercial Code disputes; and commercial landlord-tenant disputes, summary ejectment proceedings and actions involving commercial leases.

Matt’s bankruptcy and workout practice focuses on navigating clients through a crisis and assisting them in developing and executing a plan to regain stability. While that sometimes includes a Chapter 11 filing or a small business filing under Subchapter V, often the process involves out-of-court negotiations with creditors and other stakeholders to develop a sustainable and acceptable plan to resolve the client’s debts.

Matt also maintains a pro bono practice, volunteering with the Council for Children’s Rights and Disaster Legal Services through Legal Aid of North Carolina.

Prior to law school, Matt worked as a reporter for daily newspapers in Virginia and North Carolina as well as a business journal in Charleston, S.C.  He also managed community relations for the South Carolina State Ports Authority.
