You may ask: why would a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist be part of a tax lawyers ''team?'' Just to give you one example of Brooke's acumen: During 2012, a very dear client of mine approached me to assist him in transferring his $25 million inheritance into newly established business and trust accounts at Y Bank. It became evident after months of delay in opening these new accounts, "Houston, we have a problem" and my client and I were weeks away from traveling to a Scandinavian country with an eye toward his investors in offshore oil and gas reserves and real estate. Time being of the essence in this matter, Brooke was asked to investigate the cause of Y Bank's delay and whether we were just 'spinning wheels doing business with that bank. Brooke reported that Y Bank was under investigation by federal authorities for suspected money laundering violations connected in Iran, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, and North Korea and that the bank had set aside over $700 million to cover potential fines.

This disturbing news was likely the reason why it was taking forever to get my client's accounts opened. Brooke ascertained this information after an extensive investigation and discussions with her contacts before it hit the news. When Brooke worked in the Compliance/Anti-Money laundering Department at BNY Mellon, the bank was hit with some $800 million in penalties for money laundering violations which had the effect of the bank placing a freeze on the opening of new business /trust accounts (that was likely what caused the delay). As a consequence of Brooke's investigation and information, my client was able to timely establish business and trust accounts at Z Bank within a week prior to our departure to Scandinavia.

With her vast experience, Brooke A. Wiener can assist you with compliance issues. Contact our office today to learn more about Brooke Wiener.
