LOS ANGELES (September 14, 2009) — In the wake of the global financial crisis, legislators, regulators and law enforcement officials worldwide have stepped up efforts to investigate, identify and prosecute potential non-compliance and illegal activity in domestic and foreign financial transactions. In this period of increased scrutiny, AML/BSA compliance officers, fraud officers, general counsel, outside counsel, bank auditors, consultants and other compliance professionals must have a full understanding of emerging regulations and law enforcement priorities in order to minimize risk and manage audits and investigations more effectively.
Please join your industry colleagues, and a host of senior-level law enforcement, banking, regulatory and legal professionals, for this year’s highly anticipated ABA/ABA Money Laundering Enforcement Conference in Washington, D.C. The 21st annual event will be held at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, October 11 to 13, 2009.
In addition to serving as conference co-chair, McDermott Will & Emery partner Gordon A. Greenberg will be speaking in the general session, “Hot Issues in AML Law Enforcement and Fraud,” on Tuesday, October 13. The three-day conference will feature presentations, panels and question-and-answer sessions that will cover a full range of current topics, including AML examinations, corporate transparency, due diligence in mergers, acquisitions and other transactions, banking best practices, tax enforcement, suspicious-activity reporting, and U.S. and international legislative initiatives.
