Steven F. Cherry focuses his practice on defense of government investigations, as well as complex civil and class action litigation, including in particular antitrust disputes. Mr. Cherry has represented companies and individuals in North America, South America, Europe and Asia in connection with international cartel investigations and parallel proceedings. He has substantial experience in defending grand jury investigations by the Antitrust Division of the US Department of Justice, investigations by state attorneys general, and follow on civil litigation, including class actions and opt out cases, both in litigation and arbitration. Mr. Cherry also litigates other antitrust and business disputes.
Chambers USA describes him as an "exceptional" lawyer (and "phenomenal practitioner"), who "commands huge respect in the antitrust arena and is particularly noted for his experience in international cartel and grand jury investigations," and as "very talented, extremely smart, responsive and creative," "with a well-earned reputation for getting a very good resolution for his client."
Naboth van den Broek is an international trade, investment and market access lawyer. Mr. van den Broek's practice focuses on international dispute settlement, compliance and policy issues. He has particular experience representing clients in complex international trade and investment disputes at the World Trade Organization (WTO) and under other bilateral, regional and multilateral trade and investment treaties. He also assists companies and governments in dealing with the full range of other international policy, market access and investment issues they face, both inward and outward facing, as well as trade and investment-related compliance, enforcement and investigations. Mr. van den Broek co-founded and helps lead the firm's multidisciplinary International Group.
Mr. van den Broek is recognized as a leading practitioner in the international trade and investment area. He is also a Senior Distinguished Fellow at the Institute of International Economic Law and adjunct professor of International Trade and Investment Law at Georgetown University Law Center.
Ronald Machen is one of the nation's leading trial and white-collar defense lawyers. His practice focuses on government enforcement actions, corporate and congressional investigations, and complex civil litigation. He specializes in helping clients navigate high-stakes, crisis situations that garner the attention of multiple regulators, enforcement authorities, Congress and private litigants. Prior to rejoining the firm in 2015, Mr. Machen served for five years as the United States Attorney for the District of Columbia.
As the US Attorney for the District of Columbia from 2010 to 2015, Mr. Machen led the nation's largest US Attorney's Office with more than 600 attorneys and support staff. He oversaw the investigation and litigation of major criminal and civil cases in matters concerning government procurement, health care fraud, securities fraud, national security, international corruption, economic sanctions, money laundering and cybersecurity. Due to the office's location in the nation's capital, Mr. Machen was frequently responsible for representing the United States in matters of great significance to the entire country, including the successful prosecution of the largest domestic bribery and bid-rigging scheme in the history of federal contracting, and a number of landmark settlements in False Claims Act cases against government contractors, health care providers and pharmaceutical companies. He also secured numerous convictions in terrorism cases and more than 160 convictions in public corruption matters.
As US Attorney, Mr. Machen established an Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section within his office and prioritized affirmative civil enforcement actions. As a result, during his tenure, Mr. Machen's office obtained financial recoveries of nearly $2.5 billion for US taxpayers from domestic and foreign corporations and financial institutions. In particular, he obtained resolutions with four global banks that moved money illegally through the US financial system. Mr. Machen also established the first Cyber Unit within the US Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia. He oversaw investigations and prosecutions involving significant cyber breaches of personal and financial data, sales of the use of "botnets," cyber frauds committed against multinational corporations, and insider trading schemes that obtained confidential information through cyber breaches.
While serving as US Attorney, Mr. Machen was also appointed by Attorney General Eric Holder as a member of the Attorney General's Advisory Committee, a small group of US Attorneys from across the country who provide advice and counsel to the Attorney General on policy, management and operational issues.
Prior to his appointment as US Attorney, Mr. Machen was a partner in WilmerHale's Investigations and Criminal Litigation Practice, where he represented individual and corporate clients in the areas of white-collar criminal defense, regulatory enforcement, corporate compliance and complex civil litigation. Mr. Machen also served as an Assistant US Attorney in the US Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia from 1997 to 2001, where he prosecuted matters involving bribery, mail fraud, government contract fraud, federal conspiracy, homicide, embezzlement and theft.
During his career, Mr. Machen has been repeatedly recognized for his professional accomplishments. In 2015, he was identified as one of DC's "Top Criminal Defense Lawyers" by Washingtonian magazine and also honored as one of the "100 Most Outstanding African American Leaders" for his contributions in the field of law by African Leadership Magazine. In 2013, he received the Equal Justice Award from the National Bar Association. In 2012, he was recognized as a "Visionary" by Legal Times for helping to advance the practice of law during his tenure as US Attorney. In 2008, The National Law Journal named him one of the "50 Most Promising Litigators in America Under the Age of 45" and also recognized him as one of the "50 Most Influential Minority Lawyers in America." In 2006, the Washingtonian magazine named him one of DC's "Top 40 Lawyers Under the age of 40."
