Daniel P. Stipano Receives Leadership Award From Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists

The Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) awarded Buckley Sandler partner Daniel P. Stipano the 2017 AML/CTF Leadership in Government award at the ACAMS 22nd Annual International AML & Financial Crime Conference on April 4, 2017, in Hollywood, FL.

This award honors Stipano’s thirty year career at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) and recognizes his dedication to protecting the integrity of the global financial system in partnership with the AML community. Stipano began his career with the OCC as a Staff Attorney in the Enforcement and Compliance Division and was ultimately promoted to serve as Deputy Chief Counsel, a post he held for 16 years. While at the OCC, Stipano played a key role in every major enforcement action over the last two decades, and every major BSA/AML post-USA PATRIOT Act rulemaking and policy issuance, up until the time of his departure from the agency.

At Buckley Sandler, Stipano spearheads the Bank Secrecy Act /Anti-Money Laundering practice, providing assistance in establishing, maintaining, and monitoring BSA/AML compliance programs, and advises on all aspects of bank regulatory and compliance issues, representing clients in state, federal, and foreign banking enforcement actions.
