Jeff Beatrice represents multinational companies and individuals in government enforcement and investigations, including criminal, in the areas of export controls, economic sanctions, anti-money laundering (AML), and firearms.  He also conducts internal investigations and advises clients on export control and AML compliance issues.

Mr. Beatrice previously served in-house at a US-based multinational financial services corporation, where he held the positions of managing director and general counsel for AML, and oversaw the company’s global compliance strategies, internal investigations, and responses to public enforcement and other regulatory actions in the AML and related compliance spheres.

During his tenure as a federal prosecutor, he held significant supervisory positions: deputy chief of the national security section and special counsel for national security to the US Attorney, deputy chief of the organized crime and narcotics trafficking section, and senior litigation counsel. Mr. Beatrice served as lead counsel in 36 felony jury trials, including cases involving white-collar crimes, money laundering, export control and national security-related offenses, and Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) enterprises. He has lectured at the Department of Justice National Advocacy Center and the FBI.


While serving as an AUSA, Mr. Beatrice earned numerous Department of Justice special achievement awards for superior performance, as well as special recognition awards from federal law enforcement agencies.
