"As a former US Attorney, I would only align myself with a first class organization," said Matthew G. Whitaker, World Patent Marketing Advisory Board Member. "World Patent Marketing goes beyond making statements about doing business 'ethically' and translate those words into action."

Matthew G. Whitaker is a former US Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa. He was appointed June 15, 2004 by President George W. Bush. Whitaker resigned in November 2009 following the appointment and confirmation of Nicholas A. Klinefledt, who was appointed by President Barack Obama.

In addition, Whitaker was responsible for defending civil lawsuits brought against the United States, handling federal forfeiture actions, and collecting debts and restitution. Whitaker managed a staff of 60 with headquarters in Des Moines and two branch offices (Davenport and Council Bluffs).

While US Attorney, Whitaker served on the Controlled Substances and Asset Forfeiture Subcommittee of the Attorney General's Advisory Committee, a group of 30 United States Attorneys across the country focusing on the Department of Justice's efforts against drug trafficking. Additionally, he was a member of the Violent and Organized Crime Subcommittee and the White Collar Crime Subcommittee of the Attorney General's Advisory Committee.
