The National Law Journal Names Jonathan Lopez to 2015 Regulatory & Compliance Trailblazers List


Orrick congratulates our partner Jonathan Lopez on being named a 2015 Regulatory & Compliance Trailblazer by The National Law Journal. This special supplement recognizes 45 legal professionals “who have made a difference navigating the ever-changing mandates if regulatory and compliance.”

A member of Orrick’s white collar and corporate investigations team in Washington, D.C., Jonathan represents individuals and corporations in complex criminal investigations with a specific focus on Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and anti-money laundering compliance and defense. His practice includes guiding both bank and non-bank financial institutions in navigating the federal and state licensing, compliance, and enforcement landscape. Prior to joining Orrick, Jonathan spent 11 years as a prosecutor with the Department of Justice, culminating in his appointment as an inaugural Deputy Chief of the Money Laundering and Bank Integrity Unit. The National Law Journal highlighted his service in this role, which included leading investigations into casinos, fintech and other non-banks, “all of which are at risk for being conduits for dirty money.”
