FTX Founder Sam Bankman-Fried Hires Ghislaine Maxwell’s Lawyer

It appears disgraced FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried is preparing to face the music.

A new report from Reuters has revealed SBF hired attorney Mark Cohen of Cohen and Gresser law firm based in New York.

Cohen who previously served as an assistant US Attorney just so happens to be part of the defense team that defended convicted child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell.

Maxwell ended up receiving a 20 years sentence so it’s a bit puzzling why SBF would hire an attorney that is coming fresh off a losing case.

In a recent Twitter Space, SBF stated he hired Cohen due to “advice of counsel and people who are able to understand the situation and the context.”

Bankman-Fried has spoken on several Twitter Spaces over the course of this week.

In one of those Twitter Spaces SBF reportedly claimed he knew nothing of Alameda’s(FTX’s trading arm)  business dealing which practically threw his business partner Caroline Ellison under the bus.


As previously reported by The Gateway Pundit, former CEO of Alameda Caroline Ellison who is also  allegedly a former girlfriend of SBF, has also obtained counsel after SBF’s latest comments on Twitter Spaces.

Per Zero Hedge, Ellison has obtained counsel from “DC law firm, WilmerHale which  best known for its Government Affairs Department Chair, Jamie Gorelick, who was the former No. 2 ranking member in the Clinton Justice Department.”

Ellison and Bankman-Fried are preparing to point fingers at each other in court and they are about to use some of the swampiest lawyers on the East Coast to do so.
