Ever since 9/11, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) has increased its operations to curb terrorism and the illicit trade of narcotics. Join renowned author and attorney Gerald Posner for this must-see presentation on how attorneys can overcome the challenges that arise when OFAC becomes involved in client matters. Mr. Posner, who represents international clients primarily in Russia and Afghanistan, provides a stellar historical background of OFAC and differentiates its various “sanctions lists.” In his effort to help attorneys comprehend the scope of OFAC’s powers and how it operates, Mr. Posner provides engaging anecdotes and lays out the most effective ways to handle common OFAC-related issues. He concludes his program with an entertaining discussion of how OFAC arbitrarily makes exemptions to enforcing its sanctions whenever it sees fit.

III. OFAC’s Sanctions Lists (SDN, Country, Kingpin, and Terror)

Excellent speaker and interesting topic.

Truly an interesting and effective speaker. Really held my attention.
Michael (Irvine, CA)
The amazing thing about this course is that the misery of dealing with this agency is so intensely articulated that it makes me want to rush out and start handling these cases. I allude it to the same way I felt after reading Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential- wanting to go out and open a restaurant. Brilliant.
