AML, Sanctions & CFIUS

Companies benefit from our extensive experience in AML, economic sanctions and national security (CFIUS) reviews of programs and transactions.

Financial institutions retain us to develop, review and strengthen programs to ensure compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), USA PATRIOT Act, U.S. Money Laundering Control Act, anti-terrorism financing laws and related regulations. Our team includes former top regulators and prosecutors, and has deep experience in financial institutions operations and regulation.

We are a top choice for advising on licensing and compliance issues with the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) and Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), and work closely with colleagues in our White Collar Defense & Investigations practice on AML/BSA, sanctions and fraud.

When transactions require review by the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS), companies benefit from our mastery of both deal dynamics and national security requirements. Our team collaborates with our Mergers & Acquisitions lawyers to develop the most effective approach for each client.
