September 19, 2022
When federal receivers are involved in a matter with parallel criminal enforcement proceedings, they must cooperate with not only the agency overseeing the receivership, but also with the U.S. Department of Justice. Kobre & Kim’s Evelyn Sheehan, a former U.S. federal prosecutor focused on asset forfeiture, shared best practices and key considerations for receivers engaging with criminal enforcement authorities during the NAFER (National Association of Federal Equity Receivers) 2022 Annual Conference in Washington DC.
The panel on “Interagency Cooperation” took place at 10:30 am local time, Friday, September 16, 2022. Ms. Sheehan and the panelists discussed key consideration in formulating an effective coordination agreement that can help maximize recovery to victims of crime while avoiding costly and protracted litigation.
Joining Ms. Sheehan were moderator Melanie Vartabedian of Ballard Spahr LLP; as well as co-panelists Taryn Guariglia, special agent for IRS-Criminal Investigations; Sarah Waldrop, Chief of the Criminal Liaison Unit of the Bureau of Consumer Protection for the Federal Trade Commission; and Joseph Grekin of Schafer and Weiner, PLLC.
