Joven Narwal To Speak At The 20th Annual Canadian Forum On Anti-money Laundering And Financial Crime

We are delighted to announce that Joven Narwal will be presenting at the 20th Annual Canadian Forum on Anti-Money Laundering and Financial Crime, taking place May 4-5, about the impact of sweeping changes occasioned by the bi-partisan passage of the U.S. National Defence Authorization Act, which has established a mandatory register of beneficial ownership for all U.S. corporations and has enhanced the U.S. government’s ability to demand foreign bank records. Mr. Narwal’s presentation will cover the U.S. beneficial ownership registration requirements, the new whistleblower program for AML violations, and the implications for Canadian entities targeted for demands for production and subpoenas. Legal issues that may arise if a subpoena is issued without a corresponding Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty Request will also be covered.
