Ola M. Tucker, JD, CAMS

I am an experienced compliance professional with subject-matter expertise in anti-money laundering (AML), anti-corruption, and sanctions laws and regulations. For over a decade, I worked in-house to develop and implement compliance programs at two Fortune 50 corporations. I also served as the AML/BSA Compliance Officer at a Delaware financial services company focused on high net-worth clients.


Since 2018, I have been teaching classes on international anti-corruption law and corporate compliance programs at Widener University Delaware Law School. I am a contributor to various compliance publications and I have spoken at several industry conferences.

I founded Compliance Notes to share information about compliance requirements, regulations, trends, and best practices focused specifically on AML, sanctions, and anti-corruption. I provide freelance writing, including written content and training/educational material to individuals, businesses, and the legal, financial services, and higher education communities.
