Marc Boiron & Rebecca Rettig (FinTech) Placed at Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP  

Whistler Partner Placements | August 24, 2020

Whistler Partners is pleased to announce the placement of Marc Boiron (Corporate Partner, Los Angeles) and Rebecca Rettig (Litigation Partner, New York) in Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP's FinTech practice.

"Boiron is a leading corporate lawyer and advisor in the thriving blockchain and virtual currency spaces. He is known for deftly and creatively guiding his clients through a variety of issues related to token distributions, financings and regulatory compliance, both for operating companies and investment funds."

"Rettig is an accomplished regulatory advisor and complex commercial litigator. Recognized in 2019 as one of the top 100 women lawyers in New York City by Crain’s New York Business, she has successfully represented  blockchain and virtual currency companies in litigation, private arbitrations and regulatory enforcement actions."

The move was led by recruiter Wolf Konstant of Whistler Partners. Konstant explained, "when I first spoke with Rebecca and Marc about potential opportunities I took the time to learn what mattered most to them and focused my efforts on a handful of firms that aligned with those priorities.  Manatt was at the top of the list for several reasons, including size, existing expertise and strategic vision, and the match was an easy one to make."

The move is part of Manatt's overall strategy to expand its financial services and tech focus, an initiative spearheaded by Donna Wilson, CEO and Managing Partner of Manatt.

“The environment of uncertainty created by the current health crisis has significantly affected how both the disruptors and the disrupted do business, and the impact of this period of accelerated and extraordinary digitalization among companies—including those in financial services—will likely be felt for years to come. The addition of Marc and Rebecca reflects Manatt’s determination to remain at the forefront of these changes, while simultaneously helping our clients, regardless of their industry, navigate and adapt to the rapidly evolving business and regulatory world in which they currently find themselves.”
