The fast developing nature and the potential penalties for infringement make the risk posed by international sanctions and export controls a necessary focus for multinational companies in all sectors. In this complex and difficult regulatory landscape, we help clients to minimise risks posed by international sanctions and export controls on specific transactions and to their businesses generally.
In the area of sanctions we also have experience in assisting clients in corresponding with government authorities in various jurisdictions and obtaining confirmations, authorisations and licences for transactions which may be at risk of being caught by sanctions regulations.
Our global footprint is fundamental to our provision of coordinated advice on sanctions and export controls; we have offices throughout Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, Africa and the Middle East. That different jurisdictions have parallel but sometimes overlapping regimes means that advisers must have a comprehensive and in depth understanding of the complexities of global sanctions and export controls, and the local knowledge of how these are applied.
We have both the global reach to provide clients with a comprehensive overview of sanctions and export controls and the experience to advise clients on their practical application.
