OFAC Litigation

Ferrari & Associates is known to be at the forefront of challenging OFAC sanctions and blocking determinations through litigation. These cases often arise when our clients have been inexplicably sanctioned by OFAC or denied in their delisting requests or unblocking applications. Specifically, our OFAC lawyers represent a number of international clients who believe that OFAC is delaying the processing of their case or is acting arbitrarily in those cases by bringing lawsuits in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia and the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.

However, Ferrari & Associates is not only known for their litigations challenging OFAC actions. They have also led or been part of defense teams that have represented defendants in federal criminal matters brought by the Department of Justice for alleged violations of U.S. sanctions programs administered by OFAC. Further, our OFAC lawyers are routinely called upon as expert co-counsel or expert witnesses to supplement the efforts of criminal defense and civil litigation lawyers from across the country who represent parties litigating sanctions-related issues.
