US SEC hires Matthew Solomon as deputy chief litigation counsel

April 23, 2012 The US Securities and Exchange Commission has appointed Matthew Solomon as the deputy chief litigation counsel of its enforcement division. The role will see Solomon assisting with the oversight of the trial unit at SEC headquarters and the management of trial attorneys in 11 regional offices. 

Solomon’s last role was as the chief of the fraud unit in the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, where he has supervised 25 prosecutors who handle a caseload of securities fraud offenses and other white-collar criminal matters. He has also been a federal prosecutor in the public integrity section of the criminal division at the US Department of Justice.

“The capacity to litigate complex matters through trial is essential to the mission of the enforcement division,” said Matthew Martens, the division’s chief of litigation. “Matt’s substantial trial experience combined with his managerial experience in the U.S. Attorney’s Office make him an ideal candidate to help lead the SEC’s trial unit.”
