Daniel C.  Silva


Daniel C. Silva

Daniel C. Silva is a shareholder at Buchalter, where he represents businesses and individuals in criminal, civil, and regulatory matters, with depth in complex financial crimes, enforcement actions, and advising financial institutions with anti-money laundering compliance, internal investigations, and digital currencies. He brings the strength of a former federal prosecutor and an in-house global risk counsel at a fintech startup. Danny has been the architect and quarterback of hundreds of investigations, with multi billions of dollars in play. Danny’s vast experience with regulatory authorities include the SEC, FinCEN, IRS, OFAC, CFPB, CFTC, Federal Reserve Board, OCC, FDIC, and the Department of Defense. In addition to his J.D., Danny has an LL.M. in taxation and an MBA with a concentration in international business.

As part of its commitment to safeguarding the U.S. financial system, the Departments of Justice and Treasury investigate financial institutions, professional tax and financial advisers, and other “enablers” of international tax evasion. In the wake of increasing media scrutiny, U.S. laws and law enforcement have strengthened in the past few years, making it easier to prosecute or financially punish those who exploit tax loopholes or participate in international fraud. Daniel C. Silva will explore the impact of the Corporate Transparency Act, Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, and recent enhancements to America’s anti-money laundering laws. The conversation will cover how these developments, individually and combined, increase the risks for anyone advising on, or benefitting from, complex trust, corporate, and international tax vehicles.
