Matthew R. DalSanto is an attorney and an applied economist whose law practice lies at the intersection of law and economics. DalSanto formed and leads the Law and Economics Group at Winston & Strawn LLP, where he is a partner. As both an attorney and economist, DalSanto develops novel and intuitive arguments that further his clients’ objectives on many of their most significant and economically sophisticated matters. 

While in law school, DalSanto was elected editor-in-chief of the Berkeley Business Law Journal, worked as a research assistant to Professors Andrew Guzman and John Yoo, presented in Berkeley Law’s Law and Economics Workshop, and served as a post-doctoral research fellow at the Berkeley Center for Law, Business, and the Economy. 

While in graduate school, DalSanto lectured in the economics department at the University of Minnesota and served as an adjunct lecturer in economics at Hamline University and Macalester College. He has significant experience teaching both introductory- and advanced-level undergraduate economics courses, such as principles of microeconomics, principles of macroeconomics, intermediate microeconomics, intermediate macroeconomics, and the economics of public finance. He also served as a research assistant to Professor Kent Olson, where he designed a statistical model used to evaluate the expected effects of alternative federal farm policy proposals.
