Due to increased awareness about human trafficking, financial institutions and other companies are looking to do more than just make a statement against this crime. The next step is programming to combat human trafficking at the company, among customers, down the supply chain, and in the community. 

Distinguishing Moore & Van Allen in this work is the foundation laid by its Human Trafficking Pro Bono Project – a leading and lauded provider of legal aid.  Several years of experience in representing survivors of sex- and labor-trafficking led to the demand by institutional clients for advice on anti-trafficking programs, enhanced AML procedures to target the crime, and compliance with related regulation. Moore & Van Allen provides victim-informed advice to organizations seeking to strengthen their response to human trafficking. 

Robust anti-trafficking initiatives include workforce training, enhanced analytics in anti-money laundering detection, specialized supply chain and know-your-customer diligence, and survivor support services.  Additionally, companies may be subject to various law and regulation related to the prevention of human trafficking, including “Strengthening Protections Against Trafficking in Persons in Federal Contracts” (CFR 52.222-50); California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (CAL. CIV. CODE § 1714.43); United Kingdom Modern Slavery Act of 2015; and Federal and State Criminal Law and Civil Remedies Related to Human Trafficking (e.g., 18 U.S. Code Chapter 77).

Moore & Van Allen’s Financial Regulatory Advice and Response Team guides organizations through program development to ensure both regulatory compliance and social responsibility.
