“Professionally, one of the most important things I do, if not the most important, is to make my clients’ objectives my own, and to make sure everything gets done.”

— Matt Armstrong

Blending Business and Law

Growing up on the Space Coast, sharing a last name with the first man to walk on the moon, it’s easy to understand why Matt Armstrong would have had some celestial dreams of his own. Lucky for his clients, he took a different kind of leap in his time at the University of Florida — one that launched him into business and student government. “Pursuing corporate law felt like a natural marriage of two things I was very interested in.”

Drawn to the entrepreneurial culture of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP, he now works there as a partner specializing in mergers and acquisitions, private investments and securities transactions, and corporate representation. His days are spent “on a mixture of equity capital fundraising projects, M&A transactions on behalf of clients (both strategic acquisitions and sell-side), and work as outside general counsel for corporate clients.”

Almost 15 years into his law career, his busy days still wind down for Armstrong with the most important part of his life: family.

“Making the best life possible for them is the biggest driver in my life,” he said. “Professionally, one of the most important things I do — if not the most important — is to make my clients’ objectives my own, and to make sure everything gets done. Keeping that focus makes it much easier to get out of bed in the morning and go to work.”
