Evelyn Sheehan Moderates American Bar Association Panel on Money Laundering and Asset Forfeiture

October 22, 2021

U.S. prosecutors are increasingly aggressive in using asset forfeiture proceedings against defendants, pairing them with money laundering charges to seize assets. Kobre & Kim’s Evelyn Sheehan, a former U.S. federal prosecutor focused on asset forfeiture, will moderate a panel at the American Bar Association’s 36th National Institute on White Collar Crime to discuss the latest trends in the Hyatt Regency Miami at 10:30 am Miami time, October 27, 2021.

During the panel, “Money Laundering and Asset Forfeiture – Seizing Everything ‘Involved In’ Crimes,” Ms. Sheehan will examine developments in the use of money laundering charges to assist in forfeiture, including what “involved in” really means for forfeiture purposes and whether this aggressive use of the statutes raises constitutional concerns.

Ms. Sheehan will be joined by Deborah Connor, M. Kendall Day, John J. Kucera, Emma Waddell and Steven R. Welk.
