Practice notes

Victoria is a principal associate in our corporate crime and investigations team. Victoria has experience in all areas of financial crime with particular focus on financial sanctions.

Victoria has significant experience in conducting independent audits and risk assessments upon sanctions control frameworks and is the day to day contact for a number of clients in the context of financial sanctions compliance.

Victoria frequently leads on complex and technical advice and large scale investigations in respect of US, EU and UK sanctions.

Victoria recently spent 18 months as the lead lawyer on a large scale historic sanctions investigation for a UK financial institution, working internationally across our US and UK offices which involved the assessment of potential breaches of US and UK sanctions and the management of over 200 analysts and legal reviewers. This also involved mapping the bank’s sanctions systems and controls against legal and regulatory requirements and drafting a voluntary self-disclosure to sanctions authorities in both the US and UK. Victoria has also led on a historic sanctions investigation for a technology based client resulting in a successful conclusion with US authorities.

In addition to her complex caseload, Victoria has also co-authored a chapter for Global Investigations Review’s first ever book on sanctions compliance – “The Guide to Sanctions” – setting out her detailed knowledge of sanctions compliance programmes.

Victoria also works closely with industry bodies, including UK Finance. She is a member of UK Finance’s Associate Members Sanctions Committee and is the Deputy Chair of the Women in Sanctions Forum.
