    Ferrari provided outstanding service and results to obtain OFAC license

    Erich Ferrari has the expertise and knowledge of the OFAC license requirements and their expectations, where we haven't found anyone else as well versed in the area. He has guided us and has prepared all the needed documentation to obtain the OFAC license which was Granted.
    We're glad Erich has given the needed support and added his special touch to our application.
    I suggest for anyone looking for help to obtain the OFAC license to get in touch with Erich Ferrari and team as we found him very accessible and very helpful to achieve a positive outcome. ...
    Thank you Erich!

    Outstanding lawyer

    Erich is a superb lawyer. He is very knowledgable in his field. He responded to all of my questions and requests timely and patiently. He worked very hard to make it possible for our organization to start advancing and implementing its mission. He never quit even when it seemed close to impossible to resolve some of the issues. Working with Erich is effortless and fantastically stress free. I recommend him without reservation.

    Not Recommended for Businesses

    We worked with Mr. Ferrari for a little while before switching to a more established law firm. Although he may be a good option for adhoc work such as personal matters, I do not recommend him for businesses for two main reasons:
    1. Unfortunately instead of focusing on solving our problems, he seemed to be more concerned about how he could increase his billable hours. Instead of getting to the point and answering some of our routine questions, he would send us various unsolicited "client letters" for which he claimed to have spent some amount of time that to us seemed disproportionately large and unnecessary.
    2. His legal advice on a couple matters turned out to be incorrect, once we checked with a more experienced sanctions lawyer.

    Given that it may not be easy to find a sanctions lawyer for personal matters - since most of them work for big law firms who usually work with bigger clients - Mr. Ferrari's firm could be a viable option for such cases. Otherwise, I think you'd be better off with another firm.

    Erich Ferrari’s response: “I was very disappointed to read this review. We don't work on many personal matters anymore, and are mostly focused on working with more sophisticated clientele, who have always been pleased with our work. Most disturbing was the belief that we are focused on billable hours, as opposed to solving issues. I can't believe that someone would make this accusation against us, given how flexible we have been on billing over the years. There have been fee disputes in the past, but we have always been able to address those in a way satisfactory to the client. Also, while I'm not perfect, I don't recall a time when our advice has been found to be incorrect. Indeed, we actually advise other "more experienced sanctions lawyers" at "big firms", and have never heard any kind of suggestion that our advice was inaccurate. Any client who could demonstrate to me that they received a different legal opinion and it turned out to be correct as opposed to ours would have received a 100% refund of any fees paid. We take a lot of pride in our work product, and we strive to make these cases affordable for anyone who wants to hire us. We only practice in the field of U.S. economic sanctions because it is a labor of love, not because it's a business for us. This is why we are so vocal in our writing, and speaking on the subject. I'm not sure what happened here to compel someone to make these types of comments, but I can assure any future, potential clients that the representations made here are not reflective of who we are or how we do business. If the person who wrote this would contact me, I would like to discuss how we can provide you a refund as I don't like to take money from people who are unsatisfied with their experience. Thank you, Erich C. Ferrari”

    OFAC License (Transfer of Funds to Syria)

    I hired Erich to assist me in transferring funds to a client in Syria. The transfer had been blocked by the Department of Treasurer, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), on the grounds that it violated the Syrian Sanctions Regulations that prohibited commercial transactions with Syria. Erich prepared an application for a license based upon the argument that the transfer was a personal transaction and not a commercial transaction. OFAC accepted the argument and issued a license.

    I would recommend Erich for any legal issues dealing with foreign trade sanctions. He was very knowledgeable about the law and the procedure; was diligent in presenting the application and following up with the agency; and was successful in obtaining the license. My clients and I were very pleased with his legal representation.

    A review from GA.

    Without his advice, we could have got to a big problem. His fees were reasonable as well.

    Highly Recommended!

    I’m not a US citizen and I live in oversea. About 2 years ago, I found Mr. Ferrari from the internet when I needed to hire a defense lawyer in the US for my fiancé who was then already been incarcerated and has no one there to help. I have chosen Mr. Ferrari by luck and till now, I’m very grateful towards Mr. Ferrari and his team for their help and support over the last 2 years! Mr. Ferrari is honest, responsible and sincere in all his dealings. We felt very comfortable working with him and are very satisfied with his service. Thank you so much Mr. Ferrari!

    Highest integrity and most responsive lawyer I have ever worked with, and an OFAC expert

    My family and I have been working with Erich on getting an OFAC license and submitting associated full disclosure. He has been truly great to work with. Always responsive to emails (including nights and weekends when urgent matter is at hand), very informative, and very trustworthy and high integrity overall. And everything worked out for us. I would not hesitate to personally recommend him to anyone with any OFAC related work.

    Evaluating Mr. Ferrari as an Attorney in my ofac license case

    Mr. Eric Ferrai took up my case to apply for my financial investment and asset transfer to the US against the OFAC in the face of Iran Sanctions legislation. Through his work he proved to be a conscientious and caring attorney. He gave me precise and extremely helpful advice. He followed all the steps necessary to acquire the necessary license. Whenever I needed his advice during our business relationship he was either readily available or returned my call within a reasonable time period. The legal expenses he charged were reasonable and tolerable even for people under financial restrain. I would rank him highly from the point of view of his professional and personal conduct..

    Erich is the best

    Erich is one of the most informative lawyers. I am very happy with his services and have recommended two other clients to him which they have told me they are very happy with him as well. Erich gives the lawyers a good name unlike few previously lawyers I came across in the past. I am sure I will be seeking his help in the future.
