Matthew Solomon Named Deputy Chief Litigation Counsel in SEC Enforcement Division
The SEC announced April 12 that Matthew Solomon has been appointed deputy chief litigation counsel of the division of enforcement, where he will assist in the oversight of the Washington headquarters trial unit as well as of trial attorneys in 11 regional offices. He will begin in June and succeeds Mark Adler, who left to serve as deputy chief trial counsel at the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.
Solomon has been a federal prosecutor for more than 10 years, most recently serving as an assistant U.S. attorney in Washington. Since 2010, he has been the chief of the fraud unit in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia. Prior to that, he was a federal prosecutor in the public integrity section of the criminal division at the U.S. Department of Justice, and also served as a counsel to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. He began his legal career as a law clerk to Judge James Robertson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia and then as a law clerk for Judge Dennis Jacobs of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
