With a solid litigation reputation, backed by years of experience, our team is ideally equipped to advise and defend clients, both in state and federal criminal cases, enforcements, and prosecutions. Our success emanates from our knowledge, experience, and personalized service to our clients. We handle a wide spectrum of criminal matters involving white collar and financial crimes, violent crimes, narcotics trafficking, and money laundering, among others.
Matters related to the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) tend to be complex, and an OFAC violation may result in serious penalties, including fines and the freezing of assets. Our attorneys also provide top-notch defense in cases involving OFAC matters, including investigations, removal from the sanctions list (including removals from the OFAC SDN List), Administrative Subpoenas, and OFAC violations. They also conduct internal company investigations, provide counsel in proposed business transactions and develop, implement and review corporate anti-corruption compliance policies and procedures.
In view of the United States Department of Justice’s increased enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), McConnell Valdés’ Miami team is also experienced in helping businesses review their Latin America and Caribbean operations for FCPA compliance, helping clients that deal with foreign governments and state-owned businesses comply with the complex anti-corruption laws that govern those relationships.
