Alexandra Solórzano is an international trade analyst at Crowell & Moring.

Her primary areas of focus are global trade policy, anti-money laundering (AML), anti-corruption/anti-bribery, customs, and international sanctions with a concentration on trade in Latin America. In furtherance of this focus, she monitors legislation and regulatory developments impacting firm clients. She also assists clients with import regulatory matters pending before U.S. Customs & Border Protection, including matters related to entry process, assessment of duties for goods subject to unfair trade proceedings (antidumping, countervailing duty, Section 201, and Section 232), and compliance with other agency regulations. She works with clients to conduct internal investigations, to respond to government-initiated investigations, and to address day-to-day trade compliance related inquiries.

Alexandra conducts “Know Your Customer” (KYC) counterparty due diligence, including (a) research (using internal and external databases) to identify beneficial ownership, source of funds, and adverse media, (b) screening of all counterparties against sanctions and other denied party lists, and (c) broader transactional reviews to identify any potential red flags related to sanctions, AML, corruption, bribery, or other financial crime risks.

Alexandra also provides policy analysis on various domestic and international issues such as the opioid crisis, beneficial ownership, and the potential effects of newly imposed economic sanctions on countries, entities, individuals, and industry sectors. Further, she assists in international litigations and arbitrations throughout Latin America and other regions of the world.

Prior to joining Crowell & Moring, Alexandra interned with Global Ties Miami and worked for la Asociación Nicaragüense de Educación y Cultura (ANDECU) on various international development projects.
