Biography

Matthew T. Sanderson is a Member in the Political Law and Exempt Organizations practice groups of Caplin & Drysdale.

Mr. Sanderson is listed in Super Lawyers and Chambers USA, where clients noted that he is extremely thorough, looks at all the angles, and gives the best advice you can get in the market.

Services

Mr. Sanderson helps corporations, political committees, candidates, and advocacy groups comply with the increasingly numerous and complex federal, state, and local laws that govern political activity and commercial interaction with public-sector clients. Specifically, he advises clients on campaign-finance, pay-to-play, ethics, lobbying rules, and reporting requirements under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

Highlights

Mr. Sanderson served as General Counsel of Senator Rand Paul's 2016 presidential campaign, Outside Counsel for Governor Rick Perry's 2012 presidential campaign, Legal Counsel to Governor Mitt Romney's Commonwealth PACs, Campaign Finance Counsel for Senator John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign, and General Counsel for a government reform commission created by Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, Jr. Mr. Sanderson was a legal consultant for Netflix’s hit series House of Cards and he, along with the rest of The Colbert Report team, received the prestigious Peabody Award in 2012 for efforts related to television personality Stephen Colbert's Super PAC. Mr. Sanderson is also a founder of PlayoffPAC, which was nominated in 2011 for Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year award for its work in bringing down college football's unpopular former post-season system, the Bowl Championship Series.

Mr. Sanderson is the co-editor of Thomson Reuters’ legal treatise on political law and an Adjunct Faculty Member at the University of Virginia School of Law, where he teaches an advanced course on campaign finance regulation. He is frequently quoted on political matters in national media outlets, such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Associated Press. He is also a Trustee for the American Council of Young Political Leaders, a nonprofit that connects rising political leaders in the U.S. and around the world.
