Ms. Scott concentrates her practice on providing bank advisory legal advice to foreign and domestic banks on a broad range of bank regulatory issues. Prior to joining the private sector, Ms. Scott served as a senior staff attorney at the New York State Banking Department and the United States Department of the Treasury, where she focused on financial enforcement matters such as anti-money laundering statutes and regulations, international banking matters and also worked on several major enforcement actions with other state and federal regulatory agencies. She co-drafted many of the amendments to the New York Banking Law that were made after each of these liquidations. She continues to advise financial institutions, other businesses, and non-profit organizations on compliance with their responsibilities under the US anti-money laundering laws, including the enhancements to these laws enacted as part of the 2001 USA PATRIOT Act.

Mr. Carney provides representation to public corporations, their officers, directors and employees, regulated entities and others in SEC investigations and criminal law enforcement investigations, as well as in related civil litigation. Mr. Carney’s financial background and depth of experience in domestic and international regulatory and criminal enforcement matters and complex litigation have also caused him to be repeatedly retained by audit committees, corporations, and senior officers of major public companies to advise them during investigations and to design remedial compliance and corporate governance measures. He has significant experience in conducting investigations of possible FCPA violations and other potentially improper foreign country-based financial transactions, including those involving alleged bribery and “facilitating payments.” Mr. Carney has also worked proactively with companies to structure and implement FCPA compliance programs that are designed to avoid potential violations and to lessen any government sanction should a FCPA violation occur. Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Carney served for more than 14 years with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and U.S. Department of Justice, where he was responsible for the administration and supervision of all securities and healthcare fraud investigations and prosecutions in the District.
