Matthew Fretten

Commercial Partner


Matthew joined Frettens in 2002 and became the Managing Partner in 2012. This role gives him responsibility for the strategic growth of the company. As a solicitor, Matthew deals with all aspects of non-contentious company and commercial work. He specialises in business and company mergers, sales and acquisitions and company formations with experience ranging from small business asset sales to large multi-million pound share sales and acquisitions.

Matt has been recognised in the 2020/21 Legal 500 which is an independent legal directory.


Life away from work is relatively hectic for Matt with his young family and trips to the family beach hut feature when at all possible. As an optimistic dreamer, he is bound to follow the trials and tribulations of Southampton FC and his hero is still, after much deliberation, Matt Le Tissier. Squash is a weekly punishment endured by Matt and once a year he can be found lagging behind younger (and much fitter) colleagues at the Easter charity quarter marathon held at Boscombe pier.
