Meet Matt Simpson
Chief Operating Officer
It is not our abilities that show what we truly are… it is our choices
Matt brings a keen eye for financial detail and analysis to the table which adds immeasurably to both the way in which the firm operates but also at a client level, in more complex financial matters. Having this additional skill set readily available to the legal team is a great advantage in evaluating and establishing losses suffered by clients. He’s also helped establish new and innovative systems that help the legal team progress claims for their clients with greater speed and efficiency.
In addition, Matt is a great mentor to all staff in the firm bringing a sense of humour, calmness and assurance that pervades across the whole team.
Matt is a CPA, with over 14 years of experience in legal accounting, operations and project management.
At the Premier Legal and Murphy’s Law Group, Matt oversees the IT and Finance functions, including financial reporting and analysis, budgeting, identifying process improvements, designing and implementing controls and other compliance activities.
Prior to joining the Group, Matt held a number of finance roles within the legal services industry, including Chief Financial Officer of a mid-tier law firm and project manager of a number of Practice Management System implementations across a number of small and mid-tier legal practices.
Brisbane born and bred, in his earlier days Matt was a drummer in a local pop punk band. Some may query why he chose a life of accounting over rock n’ roll but we’re glad that he did! So too no doubt are his family. These days, he spends as much time as he can with them. He still enjoys live music and when he can, enjoys a round of golf and catching up with friends and family.
