I practice in the areas of advertising and marketing, consumer finance, e-commerce, data security and privacy, and intellectual property with particular experience in media and entertainment, financial services, fashion, and consumer products.

My advertising and marketing experience includes reviewing advertisements, advising on unfair and deceptive trade practices and issues relating to the Federal Trade Commission regulations and guidelines, as well as state and other regulatory laws. This experience includes reviewing advertisements in all print and online media including television, radio, print, and internet, including banner, mobile, and keyword advertising.

Matthew additionally works with clients to develop, review, and implement all aspects of promotions, including contests and sweepstakes. This work includes the drafting of contest rules and guidelines as well as the development and review of electronic and traditional advertising materials. 

I also counsel clients on wide variety of issues regarding developments in and compliance with laws regarding Internet and e-commerce, including payment system and consumer financial regulatory compliance as well as compliance with laws and regulations related to credit cards, debit cards, stored value cards, and electronic payments and transfers.  As part of this practice, I regularly work with clients to ensure compliance with financial privacy, privacy, and data security laws and regulations.
