Pillow Talk Benefitting SBF?
SBF's attorney, Christian Everdell, is married to Ann Marie Preissler, an attorney in the Division of Enforcement at the SEC's New York office.
At the time of this writing, SBF has two attorneys in his criminal case (22-cr-00673) in the SDNY: Mark Cohen & Christian Everdell. The duo from Cohen & Gressler LLP represented sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell; Cohen is also the infamous “diversity monitor” who charged NYC $10 million to prod its departments to hire more minorities.
While SBF’s criminal case has generated the most headlines, Marco Polo noticed a familial connection between one of the entities suing SBF on the civil side—the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC)—and Everdell. Indeed, Everdell’s wife is a “Senior Counsel” in the NY office of the SEC, the very office suing SBF (22-cv-10501).
