New York OFAC SDN Sanctions Removal Lawyer
A department of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) identifies individuals and companies as “specially designated nationals,” or SDNs. The OFAC SDN list includes names of people or groups allegedly or potentially engaged in terrorism, narcotics trafficking or money laundering. As of October 31, 2013, the OFAC SND list was 581 pages long. Inclusion on the list can have dire consequences for a person or entity, such as:
- Travel restrictions
- Trade restrictions
- Interpol red notice for arrest
- Freezing of assets
In some cases, the United States government determines that a person or organization should be on the OFAC SDN list for a lifetime. A person or company may be barred from doing business internationally as a result of inclusion on the U.S.-issued OFAC SDN.
When Brill Legal Group, P.C., in New York City represents individuals and companies included on the OFAC SDN list, our efforts often go beyond court actions and legal processes. We may need to engage in lobbying to seek removal of an organization from consideration as a transnational criminal organization (TCO). A TCO designation will result in crippling sanctions based on foreign policy and national security concerns.
