Levin & Associates OFAC Experience is Second to None
The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is part of the U.S. Department of Treasury and has a very complex, layered, and ever changing legal responsibility to issue and oversee international trade sanctions. For companies and individuals who come into contact with OFAC, there is no margin for error, as these policies and sanctions shape the world and our interaction with it. That is why there needs to be sound legal advice from attorneys who have deep knowledge of international trade sanctions and business dealings.
OFAC issues a complex and ever-evolving set of rules and regulations that are responsive to changing foreign policy developments. These measures are applied to individuals, organizations, and other entities that, in the government’s view, may pose a threat to national security, U.S. foreign policy, or U.S. economic policy. As such, staying abreast of these changes is essential for those conducting international business. Working with a knowledgeable OFAC lawyer can help ensure compliance with all laws and regulations, as well as provide counsel on specific licensing, current foreign activities, and other legal needs.
OFAC violations often occur when individuals or entities engage in transactions with individuals or entities that are on the OFAC list of Specially Designated Nationals (SDNs). This list includes individuals or entities that are subject to economic sanctions or embargoes or are otherwise blocked from engaging in certain activities with U.S. citizens or entities. Violations of OFAC regulations can result in serious civil and criminal penalties.
