ROI-NJ notes that Governor Phil Murphy called Matt Boxer “one of the smartest, toughest guys I know” when appointing him to lead an investigation into allegations of abuse at New Jersey’s Edna Mahan Correctional Facility. Boxer conducts internal investigations for organizations ranging from Fortune 500 companies to state agencies on such issues as employee misconduct, vendor fraud, and company expenditures and related internal controls, in addition to counseling on interactions with the government and commercial litigation.
About Chris Porrino, ROI-NJ states: “When it comes to the stickiest and most difficult cases and crises, this former Chris Christie attorney general is a first call, from Gov. Phil Murphy to George Norcross. He is on everyone’s short list.” Porrino advises and represents businesses and individuals in civil, criminal, and regulatory matters involving securities, consumer fraud, banking, alcoholic beverage control, gaming, cannabis, energy, insurance, tax, antitrust, real estate, and the environment, among others.
Wingens is described in ROI-NJ’s list as having “led [the firm’s] expansion both in New Jersey and around the country [since 2008].” The firm has experienced substantial growth under his direction and now comprises over 350 lawyers in offices in New York, Palo Alto, New Jersey, Utah, and Washington, D.C.
