Marc Cohen is a partner in Mayer Brown’s Washington DC office, having recently spent three years in the firm’s London office. His practice includes litigation, banking and securities, regulatory, enforcement, legislative and strategic counselling 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 the US enforcement authorities and financial services regulators – Department of Justice, the Federal Reserve, Treasury (OCC, 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 FCA, German BaFin and Swiss Financial Markets Supervisory Authority.
Marc has extensive experience with cross-border private banking and anti-money laundering issues, including those involving the USA PATRIOT Act and politically exposed persons, as well as US economic (OFAC) sanctions, and anti-bribery and corruption. He is currently counselling several leading non-US-based institutions on adoption of their global sanctions and anti-bribery policies. Marc clerked for the Honorable José A. Cabranes in 1984–85.
