Learn about the current state of U.S. economic sanctions imposed against Iran and where they may lead next.
OFAC sanctions, ISA sanctions, CISADA sanctions, OFAC licenses
Due to an increasingly complex web of regulations, statutes, and policies being imposed by the U.S. government, the burden on U.S. persons and entities to comply with sanctions on Iran has become more burdensome than ever. Further exacerbating this is OFAC’s willingness to impose large fines such as the one we saw earlier this year on JP Morgan Chase for $88.3 Million. Now more than ever compliance programs must be robust and due diligence measures sound in order to avoid massive penalties for violations of Iran sanctions.

Mr. Ferrari, represents both private individuals and entities in a variety of matters before OFAC seeking to not only protect their rights in current legal matters, but also to make certain that they become informed and aware of what it takes to comply with U.S. trade sanctions. Due to the reach of U.S. trade sanctions law, a number of Mr. Ferrari’s clients are located in various parts of the U.S. and in several countries across the world.
Mr. Ferrari’s representations before OFAC frequently involve investigations concerning violations of the Iranian Transactions Regulations, the Cuban Assets Control Regulations, and the Narcotics Trafficking Sanctions Regulations. As part of these representations, Mr. Ferrari has worked to have individuals names removed from OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals list, answer administrative subpoenas issued during the course of an OFAC investigation, procure OFAC specific licenses to engage in transactions prohibited by OFAC, draft voluntary self-disclosures, develop and implement OFAC compliance programs for international import-export companies, and provide general counseling on OFAC related matters.
Mr. Ferrari actively writes on OFAC administered trade sanctions and has been published on the matter. In addition, he is often called upon by media outlets to speak on U.S. trade sanctions issues. He has been interviewed on OFAC related issues by CNN, Time Magazine, Forbes Magazine, The New York Times, and Moneylaundering.com. He is the founder and author of a U.S. trade sanctions blog: www.sanctionlaw.com. He is also the author of the Iranian Transactions Regulations Practice Guide.
