Aaron Marcu began his legal career as a federal prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan, prosecuting mobsters and insider traders. In private practice, he has championed pro bono legal services for the poor and brought lawsuits to protect human rights of the victimized. Mr. Marcu represented a class of Bosnian and Muslim survivors of Serbian genocide and sexual violence in the late 90s. More recently, he and his Freshfields colleagues provided pro bono assistance to help shut down Craigslist’s “adult services” ads, filed amicus briefs to help hold accountable sex-trafficking website Backpage.com and helped facilitate the passage of the Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act and the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act.
Working and fighting together, we can eradicate slavery and human trafficking from the earth.
