Matt Reh heads the firm’s Litigation practice group and focuses his practice on real estate litigation, tort litigation and municipal law.

Representing banks, developers, pipeline companies and a wide range of governmental entities, Matt provides assistance in condemnation matters. His work most frequently includes using eminent domain for community redevelopment projects, public infrastructure and utilities.

Matt serves property owners, from individual homeowners to national retailers, architects, engineers and other professionals in disputes involving mechanic's liens. His real estate experience extends to annexation, contract, easement, lease and zoning disputes for commercial and residential property owners.

In Missouri and southern Illinois, Matt handles tort matters. He regularly defends claims for products liability for clients who manufacture food materials, home appliances, industrial products, law enforcement devices and recreational equipment.

Matt also represents municipalities around the region. He has served as the City Attorney for the City of Lake Saint Louis, Missouri for a decade. He has served as the Prosecuting Attorney for the City of Crestwood, Missouri for two decades. He also works as special counsel to other cities in complex municipal litigation matters. Matt was recognized by The Best Lawyers in America® as Lawyer of the Year for Municipal Law for 2023.

Matt has invested significant time in providing legal services to charitable organizations and individuals on a pro bono basis. He represented a shelter for victims of domestic violence in a probate dispute, securing approximately $200,000 in funds for the shelter and its residents. In connection with the Land Clearance for Redevelopment Authority, he acquired property using eminent domain for the construction of a community health center in north St. Louis, Missouri. In addition, he prosecuted a claim for race and sex discrimination on a pro bono basis, trying the case to a jury in federal court.

Matt was elected by his peers to serve a six-year term on the St. Louis County Judicial Commission, a five-person group responsible for nominating judges to the bench in St. Louis County. His term runs through 2027.
