Matthew J. Cannon has almost two decades of criminal and civil litigation experience. He has served as the First Chair in numerous federal jury trials and has combined his courtroom skills, his experience as a federal prosecutor with the Department of Justice (DOJ), and his wide-ranging civil litigation skills into a practice that combines anti-corruption compliance work and litigation. Matt’s practice includes implementing and assessing anti-corruption compliance programs throughout the world, including programs focused on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the U.K. Bribery Act.
His practice also includes handling DOJ and SEC FCPA investigations, False Claims Act investigations and litigation for defense contractors and health care providers. Matt also handles antitrust matters, class action securities fraud litigation, and derivative and corporate governance breach of fiduciary duty matters. Matt conducts internal investigations for companies and defends companies against DOJ, Antitrust Division, SEC, and state attorney general investigations in relation to white collar matters, including matters that involve the FCPA, the False Claims Act, ITAR, securities fraud, antitrust and cybersecurity breaches. His combination of civil and criminal experience was recently recognized when he was listed in the 2015 edition of The Best Lawyers in America for both Criminal Defense: White-Collar and for Qui Tam Law (False Claims Act/whistleblower matters).
