Economic and trade sanctions are today being routinely used by nation states to achieve their foreign policy objectives. These sanctions measures are progressively more expansive and complex in their reach and approach, and can impose conflicting requirements on the companies that have to comply with them.  In this brief webinar, please join members of one of the largest, longest-established and market leading trade compliance teams to hear updates on the following latest developments:

  • from our US lawyers on the Trump Administration’s approach to sanctions, with a particular focus on the increased sanctions by the US against Russia which has objected to the extra-territorial scope of the US measures.  Our Russia lawyers will also provide some practical tips on how to balance the need for compliance with US and EU laws against the risk of retaliatory measures by Russian authorities;
  • from our EU and UK lawyers on the potential schism to EU sanctions policy created by the UK’s Brexit vote, along with the UK’s proposals for its post-Brexit sanctions environment, its new enforcement powers and the need for companies to follow two sets of requirements in the future;
  • from our Gulf lawyers on the measures adopted by numerous Gulf states against Qatar, along with the Qatar counter-measures and guidance on how companies should best balance both sets of requirements; and
  • from our Asia lawyers on the rising importance of sanctions rules in key Asian countries, including, China, Japan, Singapore and Australia, and the key issues companies need to be mindful of in the region.
