Now in its eighth successful year, ACI's New York Forum on Economic Sanctions is widely regarded as North America's largest and most comprehensive conference on economic sanctions, their enforcement and compliance. The global sanctions landscape continues to evolve with new developments on a daily or weekly basis as companies continue to seek guidance on how to navigate new and existing business opportunities in sanctioned countries. The enforcement landscape is changing as OFAC enforcement has expanded beyond financial services into the insurance and manufacturing industries. This acclaimed New York Forum on Economic Sanctions convenes a diverse mix of financial institutions, Fortune 500 exporters and their advisers to provide practical and timely, country-specific sanctions insights and address how to update sanctions compliance and risk management programs.
WilmerHale Partner Sharon Cohen Levin will participate in the panel discussion "Managing Increased AML/Sanctions & Part 504 Requirements and Staying Compliant," which will discuss the following topics:
- New York State developments and interplay between State and Federal Agencies in the field of sanctions compliance and enforcement.
- Effective 1/1/17, how are financial institutions dealing with the enhanced requirements and increased level of detail required pursuant to Section 504?
- Implication of the Western Union AML resolution, ZTE penalty and the prosecution of Zarrab in Southern District.
