Matthew is a Principal in Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP’s forensics & investigations practice, where he assists law firms and companies with internal investigations, as well as with corruption, fraud, and other white collar matters before the DOJ, the SEC, foreign authorities, and others. Additionally, he helps clients with designing, implementing, and testing effective anti-corruption compliance programs.
Prior to joining Deloitte, Matthew was an Assistant Chief in the Department of Justice’s FCPA Unit. There he supervised and handled some of the most complex FCPA investigations that were being investigated by the Department. He routinely assessed the efficacy of companies’ internal investigations, compliance programs, and remediation. Matthew developed the training program that was used by the DOJ, SEC, FBI, and foreign authorities for testing the robustness and genuineness of companies’ compliance programs, and also collaborated with the DOJ’s new Compliance Consultant. Matthew worked closely with the SEC and foreign law enforcement in their parallel investigations. He also developed other close relationships with numerous foreign prosecutors as part of his work with the OECD’s Working Group on Bribery and as a co-organizer of training programs for foreign prosecutors, regulators, and investigators.
Before that, Matthew was a Partner at Proskauer Rose, where, as part of the Corporate Defense & Investigations Group, his practice focused on internal investigations, white collar criminal defense, and SEC enforcement actions. At Proskauer, Matthew developed extensive experience in FCPA matters, having conducted global FCPA internal investigations and defended clients in FCPA investigations by DOJ and SEC. He regularly advised clients on FCPA issues and conducted FCPA policy and procedure reviews, FCPA compliance audits, pre-M&A FCPA due diligence, and FCPA training sessions for clients. He also conducted investigations and represented clients in a wide array of other white collar matters, including those involving allegations of fraud (health care, accounting, mail and wire, bank, ERISA, and tax), False Claims Act violations, money laundering, embezzlement, kickbacks, conflicts of interest, and data and IP theft.
Prior to joining Proskauer, Matthew served from 1998 to 2003 as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the District of New Jersey, where he successfully prosecuted numerous cases involving federal criminal violations. As a federal prosecutor, Matthew also was an inaugural member of New Jersey’s Anti-Terrorism Task Force. He previously served for the Honorable William G.
