On Oct. 19, Womble Bond Dickinson attorney Claire Rauscher participated in a panel discussion at the Association of Corporate Counsel Annual Meeting titled “In-house Counsel’s Role in Anticipating & Managing Global Sanctions & AML Risks: Geopolitics, Transnational Crime & Economic Warfare.” 

Many important business opportunities for U.S. multinational companies arise in nations and territories that are embattled with strategic conflicts and/or criminal organizations. Some of these locations are targets of longstanding U.S. sanction programs. Some risk imposition of secondary sanctions, and still others pose risks of future U.S. sanctions or anti-money laundering enforcement. This panel explored what sophisticated corporate counsel should understand, analyze, and monitor to stay ahead of enforcement, commercial, and reputational risks relating to increasingly rapid changes in U.S. sanctions and anti-money laundering priorities.

Joining her in the discussion were:

  • Laura Martino, Associate General Counsel, Global Jet Capital;
  • Cece Baute Mavico, SVP, Associate General Counsel, LPL Financial;
  • Andreanna Truelove, Senior Legal Counsel, Fidelity Investments;
  • Steve Ganis (moderator), Member, Mintz Levin.

The virtual discussion was presented by the ACC’s Compliance and Ethics Network. More than 110 people attended the presentation.
