Marc’s practice focuses on the asset management industry where he advises clients on a broad spectrum of regulatory and transactional issues. Marc is fluent in all aspects of regulation affecting money managers, funds and fund sponsors and he focuses particularly on issues under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and the Investment Advisers Act of 1940.
Marc regularly advises asset managers, sponsors and issuers in structuring, documenting and offering funds and other investment products inside and outside the U.S., including funds registered under the 1940 Act, private funds, specialty finance products such as securitization vehicles, CLOs, REITs and other real estate vehicles (including equity crowdfunding for real estate sponsors), and advises asset managers on regulatory and transactional issues under the Investment Advisers Act, including registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission and exemptions from registration. Marc also has considerable capital markets experience, having represented issuers and underwriters in creating and structuring hundreds of products and transactions to avoid 1940 Act “status” issues.
Prior to joining Allen & Overy, Marc worked in the asset management group of Willkie Farr & Gallagher from 2006-2012, and was senior counsel at the Securities and Exchange Commission (Division of Investment Management) from 2001-2006.
