The Libra Association appoints Steve Bunnell as chief legal officer

The Geneva-based Libra Association announced the appointment of Steve Bunnell as new Chief Legal Officer, after just three months they welcomed Robert Werner as the firm’s CLO.

As reported by, Werner’s short tenure should be linked to his need of stepping down from the board of directors for Deutsche Bank Trust Co. and Deutsche Bank Trust Co. Americas to stay on as Libra’s chief lawyer.

Bunnell brings deep legal, national security, law enforcement, and regulatory experience as a former General Counsel of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and a former Chief of the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia.

He has also had a distinguished career in private practice at the international law firm of O’Melveny & Meyers, where he was Co-Chair of the firm’s Data Security and Privacy Practice and formerly the Managing Partner of the Washington, D.C. office. His legal practice includes extensive experience advising blockchain industry clients and financial institutions on regulatory and government enforcement matters.

«Having a lawyer with Steve’s character, breadth of experience, and credibility with such a wide range of stakeholders will be a tremendous asset as we pursue our goal of providing a more open, inclusive, and high-functioning payment system», comment Stuart Levey, the Libra Association’s Chief Executive Officer.
