Matthew Ingber has developed a reputation as a rising star for successfully representing financial institutions, major corporations and individuals in complex, sensitive and high-profile litigation matters, helping to craft winning strategies for some of Mayer Brown’s most prestigious clients. In January, he achieved a significant trial victory for Bank of New York Mellon and NYLJ affiliate The American Lawyer named him a “Litigator of the Week” for his work in that case. In the same month, he was appointed to serve as coleader of the firm’s New York litigation practice.
Matthew joined Mayer Brown upon graduating law school, and was recognized for his leadership skills and the confidence he instills in clients. He was elevated to partner in 2007. Over the past decade, Matthew has amassed a robust book of business and has served as lead or colead trial counsel in several civil and criminal cases.
Matthew has represented BNYM as lead counsel in several cutting-edge litigation matters arising out of the financial crisis. In January, after a nine-week trial, Matthew secured a trial victory when the state Supreme Court overwhelmingly approved a groundbreaking $8.5 billion settlement—the largest private settlement ever—entered into by BNYM, as trustee, Countrywide and Bank of America. Matthew was the lead Mayer Brown litigator that defended the settlement on behalf of BNYM.
