Vedder Price is pleased to announce that Matthew A. Rossi has joined the firm as a Shareholder in its Government Investigations & White Collar Defense group in Washington, DC. Prior to joining Vedder Price, Mr. Rossi was a litigation partner and Co-Head of the Securities Litigation and Enforcement practice group at Mayer Brown.

Mr. Rossi focuses his practice on all aspects of securities regulatory enforcement defense. He represents investment advisers, broker-dealers, private funds, registered investment companies and their affiliates in SEC examinations, investigations and enforcement actions. He also routinely represents clients before FINRA and counsels clients on compliance matters including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

Mr. Rossi previously served as Assistant Chief Litigation Counsel in the SEC’s Enforcement Division, where he primarily investigated and litigated violations of the federal securities laws by investment advisers, broker-dealers, large financial institutions and others. Prior to this role, he served as Senior Counsel in the SEC’s Asset Management Unit, a specialized unit within the Enforcement Division that investigates misconduct by investment advisers, private funds and registered investment companies.

“Matt’s outstanding experience and credentials, in particular at the SEC’s home office in the Asset Management Unit and as Assistant Chief Litigation Counsel, are a great fit for our practice,” said Junaid A. Zubairi, Chair of the firm’s Government Investigations & White Collar Defense group. “He will immediately add value by expanding our offerings throughout the East Coast and nationally. Matt will be a valuable resource to our clients and we’re thrilled to add him to the team.”

“I was particularly drawn to Vedder’s strong, well-regarded Government Investigations & White Collar Defense group, the firm’s strength in the investment adviser regulatory space and the overall focus on client service,” said Mr. Rossi. “I’m excited to join this impressive team and look forward to contributing to growing the group and serving our clients.”

Mr. Rossi earned his J.D. from Cornell Law School, his M.A. from the University of Chicago and his B.A. from Le Moyne College.
