Davis Wright Tremaine LLP
Joseph is a former federal prosecutor and in-house law department leader whose practice focuses on white-collar defense, internal investigations, cybersecurity, and data privacy.
For nearly nine years, Joseph served as a prosecutor at the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York, where he handled complex and high-profile cases involving computer hacking, fraud, money laundering, and intellectual property theft. In 2010, he received an FBI Director's Award for outstanding cyber investigation, based on his work in investigating and disrupting a major international computer hacking ring that targeted financial institutions.
After leaving the U.S. Attorney's Office, Joseph held a supervisory position in the legal department of HSBC, where he was responsible for leading global internal investigations and for advising HSBC on remedial measures and compliance policy changes. He advocated for the bank's interests before U.S. and foreign regulators as well as HSBC's independent compliance monitor.
Joseph is also a member of the Southern District of New York's Criminal Justice Act (CJA) Panel, where he serves as court-appointed counsel to indigent defendants in federal criminal prosecutions.
Joseph was a partner, chief privacy officer, and head of the cybersecurity and data privacy group at McGonigle P.C., before the firm combined with Davis Wright Tremaine.
