Biography

Mark E. Matthews is a Member in Caplin & Drysdale's Tax Controversies, Tax Litigation, and Exempt Organizations practice groups. Prior to joining Caplin & Drysdale, Mr. Matthews practiced tax controversy and litigation at an international law firm. He also served as IRS Deputy Commissioner from October 2003 through December 2006, overseeing a period of unprecedented growth in enforcement activity. He was responsible for the IRS's four civil operating divisions, the Criminal Investigation Division, and the Office of Professional Responsibility, which regulates tax practitioner ethics.

Services

Mr. Matthews focuses his practice on criminal tax enforcement, broad-based civil tax compliance, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), white collar matters, and anti-money laundering matters. He also advises clients on the IRS voluntary disclosure program, with particular focus on disclosure related to offshore banking accounts.

Highlights

Mr. Matthews was previously Global Co-Head of Anti-Money Laundering at Deutsche Bank, where he oversaw implementation of the Patriot Act. Prior to that, he was Chief of the IRS Criminal Investigation Division, the agency's investigative and law enforcement arm, renowned for its expertise in investigating financial crime, including tax, money laundering, narcotics, and terrorism-related matters.

Other government positions Mr. Matthews has held include Deputy Assistant Attorney General of the U.S. Department of Justice Tax Division (1994-1998), where he led the Department's criminal tax enforcement program, and Senior Advisor to the Treasury Department's Assistant Secretary for Enforcement (1993-1994), where he was Director of the Treasury Department's Anti-Money Laundering Task Force. Mr. Matthews was also an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York and then a Deputy Chief of that office's Criminal Division, as well as special assistant to Director William H. Webster, first at the FBI and then at the CIA.
