For 25 years, Marc Litt has been investigating, prosecuting or defending complex white collar criminal matters and commercial disputes. Marc draws on his extensive experience, including serving as lead or co-lead counsel on over 50 trials, to provide practical, commercially-sensitive legal advice to companies, their boards of directors, senior executives, and individuals. As a former federal prosecutor, Marc served for six years on the Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, where he led the teams that investigated and prosecuted some of the most high-profile matters in recent years, including the Ponzi scheme orchestrated by Bernard L. Madoff.
In private practice, Marc has advised and defended financial institutions, senior executives and individuals subject to government investigations and prosecutions arising out of headline-grabbing alleged scandals including LIBOR, Forex, Swiss bank tax evasion, mortgage-backed securities fraud and FIFA, and regularly counsels private and public companies on managing risk to avoid becoming a target of such investigations.
Marc brings strategic focus and dogged dedication to his clients, and unsurpassed credibility with government agencies and courts whenever matters can’t be resolved short of litigation. His practice extends from white collar criminal defense, internal investigations and compliance advisory work, to complex commercial disputes.
