Whether developments relate to Iran, Cuba, Russia, or other destinations, Aleksandar Dukic has long been providing practical, industry-specific advice on how to navigate complex U.S. regulations to ensure compliance with Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctions, U.S. export controls, immigration, and USA Patriot Act anti-money laundering obligations.

Recognized for “excellent service” and “depth of experience,” Aleksandar provides counseling to companies, universities, and financial institutions, in particular in the banking, insurance, aviation, defense, life sciences, and food/beverage industries.

If a company faces a compliance investigation or voluntary disclosure, needs a license or other authorization from U.S. regulators, wants to develop a compliance policy and deliver training, or simply needs to assess its risk profile and understand whether U.S. sanctions or export control rules even apply, Aleksandar can help. With vast knowledge working with both U.S. and non-U.S. companies on a full range of regulatory compliance matters, Aleksandar works with clients to effectively address their goals.

From start-ups to multinationals, Aleksandar has been helping obtain employment-based U.S. visas and permanent resident (“green card”) status for key talent and senior officers who are critical for the success of U.S. operations. Aleksandar also helps on I-9 employment verification and E-Verify compliance in addition to the impact of mergers and other corporate reorganizations on U.S. visa holders.
