Partners Alessio Evangelista, Eytan Fisch and Ryan Junck, counsel Khalil Maalouf and associate Joe Sandman discuss how the recently enacted Anti-Money Laundering Whistleblower Improvement Act (an amendment to the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020) and forthcoming regulations from FinCEN will amplify the role of whistleblowers in the enforcement of U.S. anti-money laundering and sanctions laws. The authors provide guidance on what financial institutions and other companies can do to prepare for this change.
