Ken V & Bill Matsikoudis in Rome

Ken V & Bill Matsikoudis in Rome

Bill Matsikoudis

Since founding Matsikoudis & Fanciullo, Bill Matsikoudis has successfully represented non-profits and a major city in compelling corporate polluters to remediate several former industrial sites; victims of sexual harassment and assault in the workplace; and individuals who have suffered serious harm from corporate indifference in personal injury actions. Mr. Matsikoudis also provides counsel to a variety of publicly-minded corporations, including serving as general counsel to an environmental remediation firm. Leveraging his experience and relationships from a dozen years in government, Mr. Matsikoudis represents developers in urban areas: He successfully obtained approvals for a recycling facility and is representing an industrial developer that is remediating a Superfund site and creating hundreds of blue-collar jobs. Mr. Matsikoudis also litigates on behalf of corporations in the state and federal courts of New York and New Jersey.
Mr. Matsikoudis has dedicated 12 years of his professional life to public service, including nearly nine as the chief attorney for Jersey City, New Jersey. He was appointed Corporation Counsel and Director of the Law Department for Jersey City by Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy, and was confirmed by the City Council on November 23, 2004. During Mr. Matsikoudis’ tenure as Corporation Counsel, Jersey City compelled several corporations responsible for contaminating former industrial sites to remediate those sites, so that they could be used for productive purposes. This legacy of success has made Mr. Matsikoudis a de facto expert: He has frequently lectured on using affirmative litigation to clean up brownfields and on strategies to spur urban redevelopment.
Mr. Matsikoudis also led a Task Force that developed a comprehensive strategy for green initiatives, including environmental ordinances that require Jersey City to utilize sustainable procurement practices and green construction standards. Mr. Matsikoudis spearheaded a legal effort to stop a plan to cordon off a 32-acre superfund site on the Hackensack River behind barbed wire and away from the public. Ultimately, this led to a revised remediation plan for the property, whereby Jersey City acquired the site with more than $6 million in grants and converted it into natural waterfront park.
