His practice spans many of the most pressing issues facing businesses today, including cybersecurity and privacy, criminal antitrust, healthcare fraud, money laundering and financial institutions fraud, securities fraud, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and false claims act matters. As the chief legal officer for DHS from 2013 to January 2017, Steve advised senior Department leaders on a wide range of significant legal, policy, and operational issues, including cybersecurity, data privacy, aviation security, immigration and border security, customs enforcement, government procurement, and the protection of critical infrastructure.

Prior to joining DHS, Steve was the managing partner of O’Melveny’s Washington, D.C. office, representing corporate and individual clients in a broad variety of complex regulatory, civil and criminal enforcement matters. His practice included representing a major international airline in an international criminal antitrust investigation; conducting internal investigations for health insurance companies in connection with high stakes Medicare and Medicaid fraud allegations; conducting an internal investigation of international corruption allegations for an international development bank; and successfully defending a US financial institution against potential criminal charges for failing to maintain an adequate anti-money laundering program.

As a prosecutor, he was lead or co-counsel in more than two dozen jury trials, conducted and supervised numerous white collar grand jury investigations in multiple other jurisdictions across the country, and served for three years as a personal Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division at the Justice Department. In 2002, he became the first chief of the newly created Fraud and Public Corruption Section within the DC US Attorney’s Office, where he supervised all federal white collar and public corruption cases in the office. Two years later, he was promoted to be the Chief of the Criminal Division, where he oversaw all federal criminal prosecutions brought by the office.
