Matthew Cotton, Disputes Solicitor at Hedges Law

Matthew Cotton

Senior Associate

I am a specialist in dispute resolution, with many years’ experience in civil litigation. I am able to offer advice on various legal issues that may arise within your business and personal life.

I work collaboratively with my clients, empowering them to fully understand every aspect of their case and ensure that they achieve the best possible outcome. I find that this approach instils trust – I won’t just tell you what you want to hear, but, most importantly, I will tell you what you need to know.

I have been incredibly fortunate that many of my clients have returned to me time and time again over the years; and I still keep every thank you card that I receive.

I love to be outside, whether it be walking our two dogs in the Cotswolds, cultivating our garden, or cooking for my wife and daughter on the BBQ.


"Exceptionally easy to deal with and explained all options and likely outcomes in an easy-to-understand manner, and guided us through the decision-making process. We would recommend his services to anyone."
