She has significant experience advising on compliance programs, accompanying global internal and external investigations and self-disclosures.‎ She has also gained considerable experience in the area of excise tax, in particular energy and electricity tax fraud investigations, closely collaborating with the competent authorities.‎  Clients, particularly in the manufacturing, energy and financial sectors, rely on Anahita for her experience handling complex issues that arise in the intersection of US and EU trade and data protection laws.
