Dainia Jabaji is a member of the White Collar, Regulatory Defense, & Investigations Practice at Winston & Strawn LLP. She provides financial crimes compliance counseling and investigation services to U.S. and international financial institutions, Fintech companies, non-financial institutions, and more. Dainia frequently assists clients in matters involving U.S. economic sanctions, the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), and other anti-money laundering (AML) laws and regulations. Dainia provides financial crimes compliance guidance at all stages – from proactive counseling and implementing policies and procedures, to conducting investigations, recommending remediation, and drafting regulatory disclosures. She also assists clients in responding to and investigating circumstances surrounding grand jury subpoenas related to financial crimes.
Prior to joining Winston, Dainia worked at one of the world’s largest financial institutions where she drafted financial crimes-related policies and procedures, conducted AML assessments, led multi-jurisdictional sanctions investigations, and drafted regulatory disclosures. Dainia’s previous experience provided her with an in-depth understanding of the complexity of financial institutions and their internal structures, international payment processing, local and global financial crimes policies and procedures, and complex and ever-changing government regulations and requirements.
Bringing that experience to Winston, Dainia not only assists financial institution clients in these areas, but frequently assist non-financial institution clients as well who seek to implement sanctions or AML programs, or who seek counsel with respect to internal or external financial crimes investigations.
