Molly McCafferty

Managing Associate

San Francisco

Molly counsels individuals and corporations responding to DOJ and SEC investigations. She conducts internal investigations and advises multinational clients on building and maintaining their compliance programs.

Molly served on the Monitor team for an FCPA Monitorship and represents a multinational currently under the review of an independent FCPA Monitor. She conducts compliance risk assessments, compliance monitoring reviews, and internal investigations. Her Monitorship experience makes her uniquely qualified to advise clients facing similar scrutiny by enforcement authorities, and to advise on best practices in building a corporate compliance program. In addition, Molly was part of a federal criminal trial team representing an individual accused of securities fraud and tax evasion. 

Molly also represents a non-profit organization serving donor offspring, sperm donors, egg donors and other donor-conceived people. She has led a pro-bono initiative to assist transgender persons in changing their name and identity documentation.
