Matthew Jacobs was cited by The Recorder on August 14 as being one of three lawyers chosen as candidates to be Northern California’s top federal prosecutor. The selection was made by a committee vetting potential nominees for U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer. Mr. Jacobs is a former federal prosecutor and a member of the Firm’s white collar practice. Once Senator Boxer makes her recommendation to the President, the candidate chosen must be interviewed by U.S. Justice Department officials and approved by the U.S. Senate.
