Matthew Browne maintains a dual practice in structured finance litigation and insurance recovery.
Regarding structured finance, Matthew has represented clients both pursuing and defending residential mortgage repurchase claims emanating from securitized loan pools. In addition, he served as outside counsel to the independent investigator conducting a look-back review of mortgage servicing practices at one of the nation’s largest mortgage servicers, pursuant to the Independent Foreclosure Review undertaken by the Comptroller of the Currency and the Federal Reserve.
In his insurance coverage practice, Matthew has represented policyholders in multiple contexts — including providing initial coverage and exclusions analysis for various claims under commercial general liability (CGL), directors and officers (D&O), and errors and omissions (E&O) policies — and has drafted motions and trial preparation regarding denial of coverage claims under a D&O policy.
In addition, Matthew has extensive experience in governmental investigations, including but not limited to the Independent Foreclosure Review. He has also represented clients conducting internal investigations regarding alleged Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations, Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) violations, and Medicare/Medicaid fraud.
Matthew also has extensive experience in oil and gas land acquisition matters, including lease acquisition, title due diligence, and A&D review projects for clients operating in the Utica and Eagle Ford shale plays.
Prior to joining Talcott Franklin P.C., Matthew was a commercial litigation associate at Patton Boggs LLP, where he began his legal career as a summer associate.
