Willkie Attorneys Author Chapters in Global Investigations Review Publications

January 24, 2022

Attorneys in Willkie’s Global Trade & Investment Practice Group contributed chapters on the US sanctions landscape to two GIR guides.

Partners David Mortlock and Britt Mosman and associates Nikki Cronin and Ahmad El-Gamal have authored chapters in two benchmark guides published by Global Investigations Review.

The team contributed a chapter to the second edition of The Guide to Sanctions, a summary of sanctions regimes and investigations globally. Titled “US Sanctions Enforcement by OFAC and the DOJ,” the chapter provides a comprehensive overview of the enforcement of US sanctions laws by the US Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control and the Department of Justice. The chapter also discusses emerging issues and recent trends in US sanctions enforcement, frameworks for effective compliance programs and other best practices for corporations.

In addition to co-authoring the chapter, David Mortlock, Chair of Willkie’s Global Trade & Investment Practice Group, served as an editor of The Guide to Sanctions.

Separately, David Mortlock, Britt Mosman, Nikki Cronin and Ahmad El-Gamal contributed a chapter to the sixth edition of The Practitioner’s Guide to Global Investigations, GIR’s practical guide for external and in-house counsel, compliance officers and accounting practitioners. The chapter, “Sanctions: The US Perspective,” details the US sanctions regime, recent developments in enforcement actions, and guidance for companies, among other matters.
