About Erich Ferrari

As the Founder and Principal Attorney of Ferrari & Associates, P.C., Mr. Ferrari represents U.S. and foreign corporations, financial institutions, exporters, insurers, as well as private individuals in matters arising before, or in matters involving the laws administered by, the United States Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), as well as in federal courts involving challenges to OFAC designations, civil seizures and forfeitures due to alleged OFAC sanctions violations, and in criminal investigations and prosecutions for alleged violations of OFAC sanctions. With nearly 14 years of experience in national security law, exports control, and U.S. economic sanctions, he counsels across industry sectors representing parties in a wide range of OFAC-related matters.
Mr. Ferrari’s representations before OFAC frequently involve matters involving the Iran, Ukraine-/Russia-related, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Counter-Terrorism, and the Counter Narcotics sanctions programs. As part of these representations, he has worked to have names removed from OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (SDN List), responded to OFAC administrative subpoenas, procured OFAC specific licenses to engage in transactions prohibited by OFAC, conducted internal investigations and drafted OFAC voluntary self-disclosures, developed and implemented OFAC compliance programs for financial institutions and multi-national companies, and provided general counseling on OFAC related matters to a variety of clients.
Mr. Ferrari’s litigation experience includes numerous lawsuits against OFAC arising from both the blocking of assets, as well as those targeting parties under various sanctions authorities. In addition, he has extensive experience representing parties in federal criminal prosecutions, including those involving export control and sanctions violations. He has also represented clients in other litigation including, for instance, federal civil forfeiture administrative and judicial proceedings arising from purported violations of OFAC-administered regulations .
Mr. Ferrari actively writes on OFAC-administered trade sanctions on his blog at sanctionlaw.com as well as for publication. In addition, he is often called upon by media outlets to speak on U.S. trade sanctions issues and has been interviewed on OFAC-related issues by CNN, The New York Times, The Washington, Post, Forbes Magazine, and the Wall Street Journal.
