Marc Cohen’s practice includes litigation, banking and securities, regulatory, enforcement, legislative, and strategic counseling matters on behalf of global financial services firms. He focuses on addressing problems that require experience in several of the foregoing areas at the same time, such as private cross-border litigation with parallel regulatory or congressional investigations.

Marc works with all the US financial services regulators – the Federal Reserve, Treasury (OCC, OTS, FinCEN, OFAC), FDIC, SEC – and state banking and insurance departments, as well as with Congress. He also deals with non-US financial supervisors, including the UK FSA, German BaFin, and Swiss Financial Markets Supervisory Authority.

Marc has extensive experience with anti-money laundering issues, including those involving the USA PATRIOT Act and politically exposed persons, as well as US economic (OFAC) sanctions. He is currently counseling several leading non-US-based institutions on adoption of their global sanctions policies.

Marc clerked for the Honorable José A. Cabranes in 1984-85.
