Matthew T. Henshon

Allerton's Point

Matthew T. Henshon is a founding partner of Henshon Parker Vyadro, P.C. In 2000, Mr. Henshon formed Allerton Law Group, the predecessor firm to HPVPC. His practice encompasses a wide range of issues affecting corporations including governance, intellectual property and licensing, and mergers and acquisitions, and his experience includes representation of all sides of the privately-held, emerging company: founders, investors, and employees. He also practices in the area of commercial real estate law, focusing on financing and leasing, and asset protection.

Immediately prior to forming the Allerton Law Group, he served as Special Assistant and Senior Advisor to Senator Bill Bradley during Senator Bradley's campaign for the Presidency. During the campaign, Mr. Henshon served as "traveling chief-of-staff” to Senator Bradley, and assisted with all aspects of political, policy, and fundraising issues. He has written multiple law- and business-related articles in legal and business publications, and his political analysis has appeared on the New York Times Op-Ed page. He is also a regular political commentator, appearing on radio and television.

For the four years preceding the Bradley Campaign, Mr. Henshon worked at the Boston law firm of Hill & Barlow, P.C. In that capacity he worked with a wide range of closely-held and emerging companies on generational transition, intellectual property, and other issues. Mr. Henshon also worked on matters involving real estate law, probate law, and helped conduct an eight-day bench trial.

Mr. Henshon received his law degree at Harvard Law School, where he graduated in 1995 cum laude. While at Harvard Law, Mr. Henshon was elected Treasurer of his class. Mr. Henshon is admitted to practice before Massachusetts state courts, the U.S. District Court for Massachusetts, and the First Circuit Court of Appeals.

Mr. Henshon graduated from Princeton University in 1991 with an A.B. cum laude from its Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. At Princeton, he was a starter at forward for Princeton's Ivy League champion basketball team (ranked Top 25 in the country) and was twice named a District II Academic All-American. In 1990, he played in the most-watched men’s college basketball game in the history of ESPN (Princeton vs. Arkansas , NCAA First Round), a record that lasted for 16 years (broken by Duke vs. UNC, 2006).

Professional Activities
