This webinar will focus on lessons compliance professionals can learn from recent enforcement actions. The speaker will review pertinent recent enforcement actions to determine what sorts of conduct U.S. regulators are focused on and how compliance officials can learn to identify and mitigate similar risks. The main points of emphasis will be on identifying and mitigating diversion risks for U.S. exporters, identifying Specially Designated National (SDN) risks posed to world-wide businesses (with an especial emphasis on financial institutions), supply chain risks for any U.S. importer, the especial export controls and sanctions risks posed by U.S. persons and U.S. goods, and the sectors that have been heavily targeted by U.S. enforcement agencies.
The webinar will be presented through PowerPoint slides and will include live video and commentary from Timothy P. O’Toole, a member of the law firm of Miller & Chevalier Chartered, in Washington D.C. Ranked as one of the nation’s leading international trade lawyers by Legal 500, Tim has defended defendants facing government enforcement actions for over two decades and has focused on defending matters arising under export controls and the U.S. sanctions laws. He has vast experience dealing with U.S. regulators and enforcement agencies, including the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the U.S. Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), and the U.S. State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC), and in providing clients with compliance advice designed to help ensure they never need to defend enforcement actions in the first place.
