Evelyn Sheehan Discusses Civil Forfeiture at Cambridge International Symposium

August 30, 2023

As more governments expand their asset forfeiture authority to include civil or “non-conviction-based” (“NCB”) forfeiture, targets and their advisors should be aware of how prosecutors have wielded this authority and what the limits are. Kobre & Kim’s Evelyn Sheehan, a former U.S. federal prosecutor who was the Deputy Chief of the Asset Forfeiture Division in Miami, explains at the 40th International Symposium on Economic Crime at Cambridge University, UK, during two workshops on Wednesday, September 6, 2023.

At 8:00 am local time, Ms. Sheehan will join a workshop on “NCB Forfeiture: What It Is and How It Is Used?” The workshop is chaired by Stefan Cassella of Asset Forfeiture Law LLC, and Ms. Sheehan will be joined by Steve Welk of Dentons US LLP, a former U.S. federal prosecutor and asset forfeiture section chief.

At 10:45 am, Ms. Sheehan will discuss “Using NCB forfeiture in sanctions cases: issues, defenses and case examples involving Russia, North Korea and Iran.” Mr. Cassella chairs this workshop as well, and they will be joined by Tara La Morte, Assistant U.S. Attorney at the Southern District of New York; Maria Nizzero, research fellow at the Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies; and Delicia Speller of the Criminal Investigation Division of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigations.
