Sanctions Program Development
We design, enhance, and implement SCPs, including new policies and procedures, due diligence methods, and implement compliance technology.
We have extensive experience testing and implementing some of the top screening , transaction monitoring, and core banking systems in the industry. Our methodology strikes a balance between being effective and efficient, and ensures your systems work across the entire enterprise. We have detailed insight into some of the most popular compliance systems on the market, including Fircosoft, Actimize, Norkom, Mantas, Safewatch, and Lexis Bridger Insight.
Sanctions Program Assessments
We provide assessments and/or benchmarks on the effectiveness of SCPs, and frequently work with global financial institutions to ensure they are compliant in all jurisdictions and businesses.
Advanced Monitoring, Intelligence, and Analytics
We provide clients with custom solutions to monitor sanctions and AML risks. These include specialized scenarios to monitor for sanctions transactions, custom watchlists, or dashboards to monitor changes in high-risk behavior. We also draw on our experience from past investigations to provide you with realistic typologies, and more importantly, controls to address those threats.
Regulatory Interactions, Litigation, and Lookbacks
We have represented firms appearing before the DOJ, OFAC, and federal and state regulators, led the sanctions testing across three major DOJ and DFS appointed monitorships, and have a wealth of experience conducting complex cross-border investigations.
Training and Outreach
We provide tailored training to your institution on sanctions compliance topics. Our training is oriented towards advanced topics, such as creating better alert handling, filter management, or advanced due diligence techniques.
Outreach and Public Service
After the invasion of Ukraine, we began an extensive outreach campaign to get quality information to those who need it most. We encourage you to read our advisories and use our toolkits. We also reach out to our clients, partners, and partner law firms from time to time to provide briefings on compliance trends topics, threat actor tactics, or technology developments.
