Brian Frey focuses his practice on representing financial institutions, major corporations, and individuals in white collar investigations involving a range of criminal and civil laws, including U.S. sanctions laws (IEEPA, TWEA), U.S. export controls laws (EAR, ITAR), anti-money laundering laws, and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
With more than 10 years of white collar investigation experience, including as a federal prosecutor at the U.S. Department of Justice, Brian brings a wealth of legal knowledge and sound judgment to his clients.
While at the DOJ, Brian handled all aspects of highly complex investigations principally focused on cross-border business and financial transactions implicating U.S. sanctions laws and the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA).
Brian developed a command of analyzing the adequacy of corporate compliance programs in the context of relevant statutory and regulatory requirements. Before his time at the DOJ, Brian spent eight years as an attorney within Alston & Bird’s Litigation & Trial Practice Group.
His practice was primarily focused on government and internal investigations of large companies in the financial and manufacturing industries for alleged civil and criminal violations of U.S. sanctions and export control laws and the FCPA.
Brian also counseled corporate clients on developing robust compliance programs to reduce potential legal exposure related to these areas of the law.
