After graduating from Harvard Law School, Marc began his legal career in New York as a litigation associate as a large international law firm. At that firm, Marc represented financial institutions in matters arising from the 2008 financial crisis, including securities litigation in state and federal courts across the country, and an investigation by the Federal Reserve into a publicly traded bank.
Marc then served as a law clerk for two federal judges on the trial court (District of New Jersey) and appellate (Third Circuit) levels. He then returned to private practice focusing on complex commercial litigation, including on a team representing a small business owner in an arbitration proceeding which resulted in the recovery of funds misappropriated by the client’s business partner. Marc also represented two hedge funds at the conclusion of a multiyear lawsuit to recover on defaulted sovereign bonds, and he represented the audit committee of a publicly traded company in an SEC investigation into accounting improprieties.
A Louisville native, Marc returned to Kentucky in 2017 and joined the Office of the Attorney General as an Assistant Attorney General in the Office of Civil and Environmental Law. As Assistant Attorney General, Marc represented the Commonwealth, its agencies, and its employees in state and federal courts, including in historic litigation in which the Kentucky Supreme Court struck down a public pension law for violating the Kentucky Constitution.
Marc then served as Deputy General Counsel to Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear, where he advised the Governor and other Executive Branch officials on legal matters, and represented the Governor at all levels of the state and federal judiciary, including both the Kentucky and United States Supreme Courts. Marc joined Tachau Meek in October 2022.
Marc received his undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania (BA, summa cum laude, 2007) and his law degree from Harvard Law School (JD, cum laude, 2010).
