Matt Cave is a Founding Partner of Kibler Fowler & Cave LLP. He has litigated and tried cases in state and federal courts throughout California. His expertise is in real estate, entertainment, and business litigation. Matt represents individuals and companies of all sizes, as plaintiffs and defendants. Although his practice is based in California, he has litigated matters in New York, Texas, Colorado, and other states as well.

After graduating from USC Gould School of Law, Matt served as a federal law clerk in the Central District of California. He spent several years working at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett and Morrison & Foerster before developing his own practice and then co-founding the firm with Mike and John.

Matt has run cases from start to finish: from pre-litigation through trial and then judgment enforcement. His broad experience, both substantively and at all phases of dispute resolution, allows him to see the big picture in cases and counsel his clients to make the right strategic decisions based on their litigation, personal, and business goals.

Matt is also active in his community. He currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Los Angeles Center for Law & Justice, a non-profit serving survivors of domestic violence in the LA area, and participates in several alumni mentorship programs for USC’s law school.
