T&M Protection Resources, LLC (T&M), a New York City-based worldwide provider of security, consulting and investigative solutions, is pleased to announce that Duncan Levin, the former Chief of Asset Forfeiture for the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and federal prosecutor for the U.S. Department of Justice, has joined T&M as Senior Vice President of Financial Intelligence.

Mr. Levin will lead the newly formed Financial Intelligence division, bringing his expertise in state and federal asset forfeiture, money laundering and Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) investigations to T&M’s growing list of clients in the financial services and law enforcement sectors. Under his management, T&M will further expand its financial services offerings to include tracing and tracking assets, working with BSA and Financial Crimes Enforcement Network material and investigating financial aspects of complex money laundering and asset forfeiture cases.

Robert S. Tucker, Chairman and CEO of T&M, has known Mr. Levin for years and has been impressed with his professional background and breadth of knowledge in the niche of state and federal asset forfeiture and money laundering. “Mr. Levin transformed the way state prosecutors view asset forfeiture and has had amazing success at both the state and federal levels with modernizing sanctions upon criminal conviction. His understanding of how these types of cases work will be of tremendous assistance as T&M advises our clients in the financial services industry, and we are excited to have him join us.”

Mr. Levin joins T&M after a prominent career as a prosecutor with both the U.S. Department of Justice and the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. At the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, Mr. Levin was Chief of Asset Forfeiture, managing a staff of full-time assistant district attorneys and support personnel while overseeing all criminal and civil asset forfeiture and money laundering on a variety of cases, including white-collar fraud, identity theft, organized crime, terrorist financing and narcotics. Mr. Levin also managed the District Attorney’s restoration of forfeited funds to crime victims and, among his many notable accomplishments, was the original drafter of a criminal forfeiture and criminal monetary recovery statute that was included in New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo’s 2012 budget proposal. Prior to joining the District Attorney’s Office, Mr. Levin served as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, where he specialized in money laundering and asset forfeiture.  He also has been in private law practice and clerked for U.S. District Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis.

“I’m extremely excited by the opportunity to contribute to the success of a team as dynamic as T&M and to add critical financial crimes capacity to its existing investigative platforms” commented Mr. Levin. “I was impressed by the firm’s stellar reputation and by its expertise in internal investigations, BSA compliance monitoring and asset tracing.”

Mr. Levin received his Bachelor of Arts with honors from Yale University and his Juris Doctorate from Yale Law School.
