Our money laundering practice touches many other areas of our expertise. Money laundering issues can arise in a multitude of situations, including white collar charges, RICO and COCCA charges, marijuana production and distribution and other drug crimes, Foreign Corrupt Practice Act violations, embezzlement, and Bank Secrecy Act/anti-money laundering (BSA/AML) issues; basically any crime where a person is alleged to have either hidden the proceeds of illegal activity or used those proceeds in their business.
The Eichner Law Firm has diverse experience in issues where money laundering plays a role. Internationally, the firm has handled violations enforced by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) involving illegal exports to foreign countries. In Colorado, our firm has dealt with money laundering as a part of violations for marijuana distribution and drug or sex crimes charged under the organized crime statutes (COCCA and RICO). Our firm not only handles responses to charges, but we also help individuals and companies avoid violations in the first place through our Internal Compliance Investigations practice area.
The Eichner Law Firm is uniquely positioned to assist clients in responding to regulatory inquiries, examinations, and subpoenas. Our attorneys have built relationships with state and federal agencies, including the Colorado Department of Revenue's Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED), and also have deep experience in pretrial negotiation, which can prevent a costly trial. Our investigators are not only skilled at comprehensive intelligence gathering, but we also boast David Riordon, a former special agent with the IRS tasked with specifically investigating money laundering activity. The Eichner Law Firm has the necessary team to handle any money laundering charge, including any other related criminal charges that may be brought.
