Washington Attorney Clif Burns will be among the presenters at the American Conference Institute's 7th Annual Forum on AML & OFAC Compliance for the Insurance Industry, Jan. 19-20 in New York.
Burns and his co-panelist will address ethical issues that arise from anti-money laundering (AML) and sanctions compliance challenges and best practices for resolving them. They will examine common dilemmas that can occur as well as gray areas, and share how to determine what to do, or not do, in such situations. Particularly, the panel will cover the establishment of ethics hotlines, best practices for providing sound legal advice while avoiding prohibited topics and issues involving recusal.
A frequent speaker and author on these themes, Burns focuses his practice on export controls, economic sanctions, customs, national security and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. His export control work encompasses a broad range of areas and includes matters involving the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) administered by the Department of Commerce, the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) administered by the State Department, and the country-based economic sanctions program administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the Treasury Department. In relation to these three regulatory schemes, Burns has broad experience in developing compliance programs, conducting due diligence for compliance, and submitting voluntary disclosures of prior unlicensed exports.
