Mayer Brown announced that White Collar Defense & Compliance partner Matthew Alexander (Washington DC) was selected as a 2017 “40 Under 40” honoree by Global Investigations Review (GIR). The annual list recognizes 40 accomplished young investigations lawyers helping shape the future of this fast-evolving area of law.

GIR recognized Mr. Alexander for multiple corporate and individual Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) resolutions and declinations he helped companies secure. When asked why he chose investigative work, he told the publication, “Piecing together the puzzle during an investigation never gets old. Investigations take you around the world where you meet some of the most interesting personalities.”

At Mayer Brown, Mr. Alexander focuses his practice on counseling and defending corporations and individuals in a variety of enforcement matters—principally before the United States Department of Justice and Securities and Exchange Commission, conducting internal investigations, and providing ongoing corporate compliance advice.
