David Chenkin to be Featured Speaker at two October Events in Israel

Zeichner, Ellman & Krause LLP’s Managing Partner, David B. Chenkin, a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist, will be traveling to Israel in October to address two conferences on “Anti Money Laundering Trends” in the United States.

 Chenkin’s first presentation will be at the “Sixth Annual Risk Management Conference”, on October 22, at the City Tower in Ramat Gan. The second conference, sponsored by the Israeli Bar Association, will take place on October 23rd and will be held at the Holiday Inn Crown Plaza in Tel Aviv.

“Anti-money laundering laws and regulations are highly complex and multi-layered,” says ZEK’s David Chenkin. “As international commerce, financing and banking grows, as well as the threat of global terrorism, so does the demand for legal practitioners who understand the challenges, policies and procedures related to AML in countries around the world.

Lawyers in Israel whose clients do business in the U.S. will increasingly have to provide resources to their clients that can guide their thinking about how best to comply with specific U.S. regulatory requirements. I am very happy to share my thoughts about AML law in the United States with the Israeli legal community.

Additionally, I expect to learn a great deal about Israel’s AML concerns, processes and procedures from conference attendees.”

In May of 2013, ZEK became the first multi-lawyer Amercian law firm to be officially certified as a foreign law firm in Israel.
