Matt Peed Appointed to Represent Libyan National Charged in Benghazi Attacks
Partner Matt Peed has been appointed to represent Mustafa al-Imam, the second Libyan national charged in connection with the 2012 attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya. The case is assigned to Judge Christopher Cooper in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
Peed is no stranger to high-stakes criminal cases arising from events overseas. He previously led our team that successfully defended Ali Mohamed Ali, a former acting education minister in Somalia, against charges that he participated in a pirate hijacking of a Danish cargo ship in 2008.
