OFAC & US Sanctions Services for Foreign Entrepreneurs Now Available

Nowadays, it has become increasingly difficult to carry out cross-border business around the world due to US sanctions regulations. Speaking from the immigration perspective, USCIS thoroughly researches the tracing of foreign investors’ funds.

Some of our clients, from countries like Russia and many others, may face potential targeting by US sanctions. In particular, recently we received an OFAC authorization for a client for whom the source of income was based on Crimean assets.

We are striving to help our clients and ready to share our expertise in the following areas:

  • Analyzing the investor’s background and providing legal advice on the potential application of US sanctions, including, but not limited to: analysis of the potential application of the Acts of Congress, CAATSA, the President’s Executive Orders, OFAC explanatory notes, and general licenses;
  • Providing due diligence with regards to compliance with OFAC procedures;
  • Obtaining specific transactions licenses and advisory opinions from OFAC;
  • And other sanctions-related services.
