Former Global Head of Cybersecurity Law at JPMorgan joins Hogan Lovells
New York, 15 July 2019 – Global law firm Hogan Lovells is pleased to announce that Peter Marta has joined the firm's New York office as a partner in its Privacy and Cybersecurity practice.
Marta joins Hogan Lovells from JPMorgan Chase & Co., where he served as the bank's global head of Cybersecurity and Global Security and Investigations Legal. In this role, he provided cybersecurity legal support to the bank’s senior leadership and helped JPMorgan Chase establish an industry leading cybersecurity program. He served as the primary point of contact for interactions with law enforcement and the intelligence community on all matters related to cybersecurity and cybercrime.
"We have been strategically expanding our Privacy and Cybersecurity practice. The competition for the best people in the legal industry is intense," said Harriet Pearson, leader of Hogan Lovells' Global Cybersecurity Practice. "Hiring someone with Peter’s in-demand mix of industry and government experience and ability confirms our position as one of the world’s leading practices. We are delighted that Pete has decided to return to private legal practice and join our team."
Prior to joining JPMorgan Chase in 2013, Marta spent several years with the U.S. Intelligence community.
"Hogan Lovells has built an enviable track record by representing clients involved in many of the world’s largest data security matters," said Marta. "I am excited to join the firm's multidisciplinary cyber team and to work with clients across industry sectors drawing on my experience in banking and financial services as well as government."
Burgeoning cybersecurity risks present potent challenges to companies operating in major financial centers.
"Peter will be a valuable resource for our clients in the New York area," said Oliver Armas, Office Managing partner of the firm's New York office. "Cybersecurity advice is critical to our clients in the financial sector, and New York is home to many of the largest global financial institutions."
Cybersecurity issues faced by financial companies can be particularly complex.
"Peter offers a rare level of insight into managing end-to-end cybersecurity risk," said Sharon Lewis, Global Head of the firm’s Financial Institutions Sector. "His experience in both building a comprehensive cybersecurity program and overseeing interactions with public officials aligns well with our commitment to stay ahead of the challenges our clients face even as the pace of change in our industry continues."
Marta graduated summa cum laude from the College of William and Mary in 1998, and earned his J.D. from Harvard Law School in 2003.
