Sanctions Advising

Is your company having difficulties in trying to maintain compliance with sanctions and trade restrictions pertaining to Russia, Iran, and China? Do you know how much due diligence is required to ensure you are in compliance with Department of State, Department of Commerce (BIS), and Department of Treasury (OFAC) sanctions and trade restrictions?

On March 2, 2023, U.S. Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco said that the DOJ is hiring 25 new prosecutors who will investigate and prosecute sanctions evasion, export control violations and similar economic crimes. She said the department will zealously pursue corporate crime in any industry, and will hold wrongdoers accountable, no matter how prominent or powerful they are. The new hires are part of a broader restructuring of, and resource commitments to, the DOJ’s National Security Division (NSD), increasing its capacity to investigate and prosecute sanctions violations.
