Mintz Sanctions

Managing Exposed Risk

 In a world of increasing uncertainty, knowing your business partners and potential counterparties is more important than ever.  “Check the box” diligence can often leave you open to unknown risks; with sophisticated parties operating around the globe, a more nuanced assessment of risk is critical. 

With ever increasing sanctions regimes on one side and sophisticated actors seeking to obfuscate their ownership and financial interests on the other, a nimble and nuanced investigation of beneficial ownership and sanctions risk is key. Our investigative services include:

•   From higher volume compliance checks to deep investigations of kleptocrats’ complex holding structures, our investigations are tailored to client’s needs.

•   We typically undertake due diligence reviews based on a phased approach, depending on the level of risk and information accessibility in each jurisdiction.

•   Our investigations often cover the deep paper trail and talking with closely held sources to order to map ultimate beneficial ownership and identify undisclosed connections.
