Matthew Kent Named a “40 Under Forty” Honoree by Atlanta Business Chronicle

Alston & Bird’s Matthew Kent, partner in the firm’s Litigation & Trial Practice Group, has been selected to the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s “40 Under Forty” Class of 2019.

Kent focuses his practice on antitrust litigation, counseling, and other complex litigation. He has extensive experience prosecuting and defending global price-fixing cartels for Fortune 100 companies and has defended pharmaceutical companies in private litigation and government investigations of so-called reverse payment settlement agreements. 

Active in antitrust circles, Kent has served in the leadership of the American Bar Association’s Antitrust Law Section, the largest and most prominent antitrust bar organization, for almost a decade. Co-chair of the section’s Unilateral Conduct Committee, Kent is also the former chair of the Business Torts & Civil RICO Committee and Compliance & Ethics Committee. This past year, he helped update the section’s Annual Review of Antitrust Law Developments, published in March 2019.

Kent also devotes his time to community service. After four years as a member of the board of Jerusalem House, he currently serves as president and board chairman of the organization, which is Atlanta’s oldest and largest provider of permanent housing solutions and services for homeless and low-income men, women, and children affected by HIV/AIDS. In addition to fundraising and speaking at events, Kent and a team of Alston & Bird attorneys have contributed hundreds of hours of pro bono legal services to Jerusalem House.

This is the 16th year that the Atlanta Business Chronicle has featured a “40 Under Forty” class of rising stars. The program honors 40 men and women under age 40 for their notable career achievements and community contributions.
