High-level officials at the Justice Department are warning that the DOJ is “surging” resources in a new effort to combat corporate crime.
It appears the DOJ’s areas of primary focus will include:
- Export and sanctions controls
- Cases involving cryptocurrency
- Conduits of pandemic-relief funds, such as banks and fintech companies
In a presentation to the GIR Connect New York conference, Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General John Carlin emphasized that the department is preparing “to surge resources for corporate enforcement,” which Carlin indicated is a reflection of a “commitment to white-collar enforcement.”
