Understanding the legal challenges and implications surrounding international trade and sanctions
International trade and sanctions frameworks are complex and often respond to dynamic, volatile and changing political landscapes. The need to stay ahead of the latest regulations and developments is critical. The globalisation of international trade controls and sanctions and the new reality of cooperation between international regulators in different jurisdictions requires businesses to adopt a coordinated, global approach. A failure to comply with international trade and sanctions regimes can result in significant civil and criminal sanctions, harsh penalties for businesses, and even imprisonment for individuals.
Our international trade and sanctions news and development service focuses on providing the latest up-to-date regulatory developments that impact companies and individuals who are subject to sanctions regimes in the US, EU, Australia,Canada and the UK.
