DRT Miami Year in Review: 2021 Anti-Corruption and Crypto-Related Enforcements

With South Florida a major center for high-profile Government investigations, and Miami the pivot point
between the Americas and Europe, our firm has earned recognition for its work in representing clients in
cases involving the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”), the Money Laundering Control Act (“MLCA”), the
Global Magnitsky Act (“GLOMAG”), and the Sanctions and regulations of the U.S. Department of Treasury’s
Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”).
Over the years, our team of bilingual attorneys certified in international law, former prosecutors and law
enforcement agents, and Sanctions and anti-money laundering specialists has successfully represented
U.S. and non-U.S. citizens in obtaining pre-indictment resolution of Florida, U.S., and transnational parallel
proceedings conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Miami, the Department of Justice (“DOJ”), and the
various U.S. law enforcement agencies. Our team is also experienced in representing clients in business
transactions, corporate governance, and entity formation, particularly, in securing the client’s compliance
with U.S. laws and regulations targeting money laundering, corruption, securities fraud, violation of economic
sanctions, and other criminal activity.
Not surprisingly, 2021 was a very active year for our law firm. For example, throughout this year, the
Government implemented additional measures in the U.S. fight against corruption, which has been declared
by the Biden-Harris administration “a core U.S. national security interest.”
In addition, the U.S. Government heightened its efforts to penalize violations of U.S. laws and regulations in
the virtual currency industry.
