Global Investigations Review named anti-corruption and international risk partner Ama Adams one of its “D.C. Sanctions Lawyers to Have on Speed Dial.” The list highlights 25 of the most respected sanctions lawyers in Washington, D.C. Ms. Adams, who focuses on international transactions and the U.S. government’s regulation of trade and investment, started her career right after 9/11. Since then, “OFAC has implemented a wide range of comprehensive, targeted and sectoral sanctions, many of which have differing implications and far-reaching consequences outside their original focus on terrorism,” Ms. Adams told GIR. “More than ever, companies need to ensure that their existing sanctions compliance frameworks are not falling behind evolving regulatory expectations.”
