Attorney Profile

As the founder of the Arcé Law Group, PC, and now Co-Chair of Phillips & Associates, PLLC, Bryan Arcé serves clients throughout the New York City metropolitan area. He focuses his law practice in the area of employment law, with a particular interest in cases involving sexual harassment claims, and is admitted to practice law in the state courts of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C.  He is also admitted to several federal courts, including the U.S. District Courts for the Southern, Eastern & Northern Districts of New York, the District Court for the District of New Jersey, the Eastern & Western Districts of Pennsylvania and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit.

After earning his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Mr. Arcé attended The Culinary Institute of America, graduating in 1997 and going on to a 10-year career as a chef in Mexico, Europe and the United States. With his time in the service industry giving him insight to the nature of employee-employer relationships, Mr. Arcé began his legal career by earning a law degree from Brooklyn Law School in 2009, and then founding his current practice in 2011. Experience as a judicial intern at The Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC) has also given Mr. Arcé a strong foundation for dealing with matters of workplace discrimination and wrongful termination.

Mr. Arcé devotes 100 percent of his time to representing employees dealing with issues of the workplace, including discrimination, sexual harassment claims, wage and hour violations, and more. He is passionate about helping those with such issues to the highest degree, with some outcomes reaching verdicts of several million dollars.

Scholarly Lectures/Writings:

  • It is estimated that as much as $1.5 trillion may be “laundered” every year worldwide, or about two to five percent of the global domestic product. Of this amount, $500 billion can be attributed to hiding the proceeds of tax evasion. Tax evasion and money laundering, although separate and distinct crimes, are intertwined in that all illegal proceeds, when laundered, effectively evade taxes, and all legitimate money that evades taxes becomes illegal and subsequently needs to be “laundered.” The article argues that a TIEA with Panama would allow the United States to circumvent the strict financial secrecy laws that shield American tax evaders and money launderers from prosecution. Part I of this Note describes the mechanics and nterrelation of money laundering, tax evasion, and Panamanian financial secrecy laws. Part II addresses the measures the United States has implemented to combat the money laundering problem and their ineffectiveness in dealing with tax evasion. Part III proposes how the United States could implement a TIEA with Panama to address the U.S. need for tax information, while at the same time, respecting Panama’s commitment to protecting its financial secrecy regime, Taken to the Cleaners: Panama 's Financial Secrecy Laws Facilitate the Laundering of Evaded U.S. Taxes, Banking, Compliance, Financial Services, 2009
