Jacobson Lopez attorneys are recognized experts in Ethics & Compliance with a particular focus on anti-corruption and anti-money laundering programs.

We have acted in some of the most complex environments across the world for industries such as oil and gas, extractive, aerospace, defense, and consumer goods.
Our methodology is rooted in a commitment to rigor and practicality. We recognize that anti-corruption laws are complex and continually evolving, making it essential for businesses to navigate these regulations while also maintaining operational efficiency. Our attorneys provide unparalleled services to clients seeking to build, test, and enhance their compliance operations. We have skillfully and successfully built ethics and compliance programs for some of the world’s largest companies. We regularly assist clients with risk assessments, compliance audits and reviews, M&A due diligence, and third-party due diligence. We also advise clients regarding their compliance obligations following settlements with the DOJ and SEC.
Similarly, with years of hands-on experience in handling complex anti-money laundering issues, our team has successfully guided clients through the intricacies of AML regulations, ensuring that their operations remain well protected by a robust compliance framework. Our team’s adept understanding of the ever-evolving AML landscape enables us to provide tailored solutions, regardless of the complexity of the challenge at hand. Our expertise covers the range of Title 31 regulated entities from money service businesses / virtual asset service providers, to casinos to broker dealers in securities to traditional banks.
We keep our finger on the pulse of ever-shifting government policies and guidance documents and offer tailored advice, which enables our clients to balance government expectations with practical, business realities. As one-size-fits-all solutions simply do not work in the realm of corporate compliance, we work closely with organizations to identify unique risks, assess existing compliance programs, and develop strategies that are both legally sound and operationally pragmatic.
