Practice Areas

Matt Beck, an accomplished trial attorney, joined the firm as a member of the firm in 2013. His practice focuses on white collar criminal defense, internal corporate investigations and complex civil litigation. While Matt is always ready to take a case to verdict, he has been described as a “problem solver” who is willing and able to find creative solutions to his clients’ issues. Often that means that clients hire Matt not for litigation related matters, but to provide strategic advice and counseling on complicated business issues. As set forth in the following quotes from clients, Matt’s hands-on style engenders extraordinary loyalty as he handles complex, and potentially life-altering cases with grace and empathy:

“As much as I had experienced in my life, I didn’t know who I was looking for in an attorney until I met Matt.”

“He bought into my case the second I met him, and he took it personally; when I realized Matt cared about me personally, it meant the world to me … and he was the first one to do that.”

“Matt has a rare combination of understanding of the legal process, intellectual knowledge and personal concern.”

“He has been exemplary in his commercial understanding of things.”

Before joining the firm, Matt served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey where he held various positions, including most recently Chief of the General Crimes Unit. While at the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Matt investigated and prosecuted a number of significant white collar cases, including cases involving securities fraud, insider trading, corporate and bank fraud, mail and wire fraud, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) violations, cybercrime, identity theft, tax fraud, money laundering and obstruction of justice. As an Assistant U.S. Attorney, Matt successfully tried a number of important white collar cases and led the successful investigation and prosecution of a multi-decade, $37 million insider trading scheme that resulted in the longest-ever prison sentence for insider trading. His experience includes working with civil regulatory agencies, such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).
