Yashira Zwisler

Yashira began working for AMI as an intern in 2015 and rejoined the company in October 2021 as a Compliance and Monitoring Associate.

Ms. Zwisler received her BA from the State University of New York (SUNY) in Albany, and her JD from Northeastern University School of Law.

In which of AMI's service areas have you worked? What are some of your most interesting cases?

At AMI, I have worked in the areas of healthcare, corporate, and antitrust. I am currently a member of a team monitoring compliance with some of the conditions within the Final Judgment related to the Liberty Latin America antitrust matter with the U.S. Department of Justice. I also previously assisted in the monitoring of a large utility company on behalf of the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Communications Commission.

What aspect(s) of AMI's work are you personally most passionate about, and why?

I am passionate about all the services AMI has to offer, but most passionate about how AMI’s work can help improve a company’s ethical culture and create a better day-to-day experience for all employees. I am also passionate about helping companies successfully complete their monitorships and continue to operate.

In what ways does your personal expertise complement our services?

Prior to rejoining AMI last year, I was a practicing attorney in New York and Massachusetts. Part of my work as a practicing attorney in New York involved conducting corporate investigations and advising clients regarding mitigation of reputational and litigation risk. My experience conducting these investigations and assisting clients in assessing risks has provided me with skills I use both in conducting proactive corporate ethics and compliance assessments, and independent monitoring.

Based on your experiences, what would you like prospective clients to know about AMI?

Our prospective clients should know that AMI wants the client to succeed and that we do not have a “gotcha” philosophy. Corporate monitorships should be viewed as an opportunity for a company to show regulators and their employees its commitment to improvement and reliability.

AMI wants the client to succeed . . . we do not have a “gotcha” philosophy.

Do you teach and/or conduct seminars, speak at conferences, or serve on boards?

I am a member of Amistad Academy’s Board of Directors, which is a school-facing board. Amistad Academy Elementary School and Middle School are charter schools in Connecticut. These schools are part of the Achievement First network, whose mission is to deliver on the promise of equal educational opportunity for all of America’s children.

What interests do you have outside of work?

I enjoy traveling, reading, music, and spending time with my family.
