Prior to his tenure at State Street, Max served as Legal Regulatory Counsel at Standard Chartered Bank, a major global bank focused on retail, trade finance, commercial, and correspondent banking, based at its New York office. In that role, Max’s practice focused on three areas: (1) AML & sanctions advisory, (2) dispute resolution management, and (3) regulatory engagement, investigations, and remediation. As the key AML & sanctions counsel based at the New York office, Max worked closely with business units and corporate functions to advise on business transactions and deals, compliance policies and programs, and audit findings. Max was the primary point of contact for government and third-party subpoenas and inquiries, engaged closely with government agencies on investigations, and acted as in-house counsel for US litigation matters. Further, Max was a foundational advisor and in-house counsel in the redesign of Standard Chartered’s AML & sanctions program and remediation plan stemming from its multiple regulatory orders.
