Eisner L.L.P. has set up a unit that will help insurers comply with federal anti-money laundering laws and regulations.

Eisner, New York, says Robert Goecks, a principal in the firm’s litigation consulting and forensic accounting group, will lead the practice, which will focus on insurer compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act.

Goecks was a special agent with the Internal Revenue Service criminal investigations division. He also has worked as an investigator for the National Association of Securities Dealers, Washington, and has worked as an anti-money laundering compliance officer for private financial services companies.

Goecks is a member of the board of the New York State Society of CPAs, New York, and the founding chair of its Anti-Money Laundering & Counter Terrorist Financing Committee.

Goecks has a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a master’s degree in business from the University of Texas at Arlington.
