The Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice is seeking an experienced attorney to be the head of the Forfeiture Unit in the Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section. The position falls under the general supervision of the Chief and the Principal Deputy Chief.
The Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Section (AFMLS) leads the Departments efforts to take the profit out of crime. The multi-dimensional responsibilities of AFMLS include anti-money laundering enforcement, forfeiture, law development, training, and technical assistance, all done in close cooperation with partners in the United States and abroad. AFMLS also provides oversight, management, and policy development for the DOJ Assets Forfeiture Fund, including returning money to victims and funding to federal, state, and local law enforcement.
The Forfeiture Unit initiates its own cases and closely partners with other litigating components of the Criminal Division to seek the forfeiture of the proceeds of criminal activity and property used to facilitate criminal activity. The unit is responsible for providing advice and support on the use of criminal forfeiture and for initiating civil in rem actions, rather than criminal prosecutions, to seek the forfeiture of assets. In particular, the unit targets the assets of serious criminal organizations, such as the Mexican drug cartels, to undercut their profit motive and disrupt the criminal organization, while also giving attention to other high priority criminal offenders who engage in criminal activity such as fraud, cybercrime, and the theft of intellectual property
