Kuang is an Associate in the Global Sanctions Group. Her practice focuses on export and import controls, with a particular emphasis on economic sanctions as enforced by the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). She advises U.S. and international companies and financial institutions on a broad spectrum of compliance and enforcement matters, including licensing requests, voluntary self-disclosures, internal investigations, and compliance assessments.

Prior to joining Allen & Overy, Kuang worked as a License Examining Officer at OFAC in its Blocked Assets and Complex Matters licensing section from 2009 to 2012, a period during which major developments occurred in the sanctions environment, including a significant tightening of restrictions against Iran, intensified enforcement of OFAC regulations, and increased cooperation from international allies with U.S. sanctions efforts. Her work required frequent collaboration with the U.S. Department of State to implement sanctions consistent with U.S. foreign policy. Kuang also was in private practice at Miller & Chevalier Chartered in Washington, DC, where she advised clients in a variety of industries, especially oil & gas, high technology, and financial institutions, on matters related to economic sanctions and export controls.
