Matthew J. Kasl
Matthew Kasl is as an associate in the firm’s Business Practice Group. Matt’s practice focuses on business and corporate law, with practical experience working in-house with contract drafting and negotiation.
Over six years of previous military experience inform Matt’s practice with a focus on attention to detail, leadership and management of personnel, as well as problem solving. Matt also utilizes the Lean Six Sigma model for goal setting and continued improvement.
Practicing law was a relatively late endeavor for Matt who, after receiving his undergraduate education in political science at Norwich University, commissioned as an officer in the United States Marine Corps. Matt’s service took him around the country as well as overseas, where Matt was deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in 2011 and 2012. Prior to departing the Marine Corps, Matt served as a Company Commanding Officer at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, South Carolina.
Following his almost seven years of service, Matt attended the Chicago-Kent College of Law where he was a member of the Moot Court Honor Society and graduated cum laude. In school, Matt quickly developed an interest in corporate law and financial regulation that led him work at both a publicly traded corporation and a large financial institution, as well as to join the American Bar Association’s Banking Law Committee where he remains an active participant.
When not working, Matt can likely be found in a number of places, riding his motorcycle along the lake, playing a round of golf, SCUBA diving on a wreck in Lake Michigan, and even woodworking in his garage. In the spring and summer, Matt can even be found on one of the many baseball fields across the Chicago suburbs where he works as an umpire for both local high schools and travel organizations.
