American Express

Mr. Starishevsky spent seven years at the Bronx District Attorney’s Office prosecuting homicides and other violent felonies, and six years in private practice, with an emphasis in white collar criminal defense (including cases involving international money laundering, healthcare fraud, corporate fraud, and public corruption). Before joining AMEX, he spent six and a half years with the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office in the Major Economic Crimes Bureau, handling matters involving mortgage fraud, international sanctions evasion, bank fraud, money laundering, and tax fraud. Some of his key cases included the recent prosecution of BNP Paribas SA, which resulted in the largest penalty ever imposed for U.S. sanctions violations (a forfeiture of $8.9 billion), the prosecution of Standard Chartered Bank for U.S. sanctions violations, several notable prosecutions involving one of the largest mortgage fraud prosecution in U.S. history (resulting in nearly 30 convictions), an international tax fraud case involving secret bank accounts at UBS AG in Switzerland, and an international conspiracy case involving the misappropriation of rare artwork by Imelda Marcos and her associates.
