International sanctions and money laundering make headlines on a regular basis, but is there anything a Southern California company should worry about? Join us for an interesting hour-long CLE presented by Crowell & Moring covering what any Southern California company should know about the government’s increasing enforcement and scrutiny in these areas, recent relaxations of some sanctions, how sanctions and anti-money laundering (“AML”) regulations affect SoCal businesses in particular, and tips on creating and updating effective compliance programs to address sanctions and AML risks. 

Carlton Greene, Crowell & Moring partner, is the former chief legal officer for the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (“FinCEN”), the U.S. AML regulator.  Mr. Greene also previously directed targeting and investigation at OFAC, the U.S. sanctions regulator, for more than a dozen U.S. sanctions programs, including those against Iran, Syria, North Korea, terrorism, and transnational organized crime, served as counsel to the agency on terrorism sanctions, and was appointed by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon as an expert to advise the UN Security Council on sanctions against Al-Qaida and the Taliban.  He will be joined by Jeffrey Rutherford, Crowell & Moring partner and experienced white collar attorney with a track record of defending Southern California companies against government investigations.
