Kevin leads Wiley’s Securities Enforcement Practice where he advises individuals and entities in securities fraud, commodities fraud and anti-corruption matters. As a former Assistant Chief in the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Fraud Section and Senior Counsel in the Enforcement Division of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Kevin brings a unique experience to defending complex, and often overlapping, civil and criminal enforcement investigations. He is frequently called upon to lead time-sensitive internal investigations involving domestic and foreign entities. In 2024, Kevin returned to Wiley after serving as the Acting Inspector General for the Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority (WMATA), where he supervised a staff of auditors and special agents conducting civil, criminal and administrative procurement related investigations, and performing financial and performance audits.

Kevin is frequently retained to help individuals through sensitive, complex matters. Clients and colleagues describe him as a “subject matter expert within the enforcement and criminal space,” “better than I could have hoped for in every area,” “serious but thoughtful, while having integrity which clients can rely on," and an advocate who is “very tenacious, technically knowledgeable, and takes a practical approach" (Chambers 2023).
