Matt’s proactive approach to assisting his corporate clients also includes helping them to avoid official allegations of misconduct by working with them to design and implement effective compliance programs. In this area of his work, Matt is often called upon to conduct internal investigations for his corporate clients in matters involving healthcare violations (e.g., Medicare fraud), securities improprieties (e.g., insider trading), intellectual property theft, accounting irregularities, export controls, and antitrust issues. Where appropriate, Matt has assisted clients in making voluntary disclosures of wrongdoing, enabling them to secure protection under government “safe harbor” programs.
