My next interview is a little different from the usual fare and is with my old friend John Geiringer. John is the regulatory section leader of the Financial Institutions Group at Barack Ferrazzano Kirschbaum & Nagelberg LLP in Chicago and concentrates on regulatory, governance, and investigative matters involving financial institutions. He also teaches banking law and regulation at Chicago-Kent College of Law’s Graduate Program in Financial Services Law and serves on the board of advisors of its Institute for Compliance.
As if that weren’t enough, John teaches national security law and is the founding Co-Director of its Center for National Security and Human Rights Law (and its Consortium for the Research and Study of Holocaust and the Law (CRSHL)). He is the editor of an upcoming book called “Countering the Financing of Terrorism: Law and Policy,” and the co-editor of an upcoming book involving the Holocaust and the law.
Our discussion runs through the key issues facing John’s clients today and rounds out with a fascinating discussion of the legal aspects of the sanctions currently being imposed against Putin’s regime for their actions in Ukraine. I hope you enjoy our fascinating conversation.
Prior to joining the Firm in 1999, John was both a bank regulator and a compliance consultant. John also obtained practical experience with respect to bank operations and compliance issues as a regulatory consultant with a regional accounting firm, performing compliance reviews and training for a variety of financial institutions.
