Marc Berger Named Director of New York Regional Office
The SEC has named Marc Berger as the new Director of the New York Regional Office. He will join the agency in January 2018.
Mr. Berger will lead a staff of more than 390 enforcement attorneys, accountants, investigators, and compliance examiners involved in the investigation and prosecution of enforcement actions and the performance of compliance inspections in the New York region. The New York office has responsibility for the largest concentration of SEC-registered financial institutions, including more than 4,000 investment banks, investment advisers, broker-dealers, mutual funds, and hedge funds.
Mr. Berger presently is global co-head of Ropes & Gray’s Securities and Futures Enforcement Practice. Before joining Ropes & Gray, Mr. Berger spent 12 years as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York, including time serving as Chief of that office’s Securities and Commodities Fraud Task Force.
As head of the fraud unit, Marc led the investigation and prosecution of many high-profile securities enforcement matters, including a significant number of cases as part of the largest crackdown on hedge fund insider trading in U.S. history. Marc supervised and investigated a wide array of securities cases, including in the areas of insider trading, corporate fraud, complex and structured financial products, the FCPA, offering fraud and fraudulent investment schemes, asset management fraud, broker bribery, market manipulation, and abusive high-frequency trading practices.
Before joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan, he served as a law clerk for the Honorable Richard Berman of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and was an associate with Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe in New York. Mr. Berger earned his bachelor’s degree from Cornell in 1996 and his law degree from UVa School of Law in 1999.
