Understanding and Navigating Iran and Russia sanctions-related risk

On Thursday, 18 June 2020 we co-hosted a webinar with Kharon on "Understanding and Navigating Iran and Russia Sanctions-related risk" with a particular focus on the ownership/control analysis - which included the "50 percent rule" and "shadow specially designated nationals and blocked persons lists and diligence challenges."

With the pace of change to the global financial sanctions landscape continuing rapidly in recent years, international businesses face an increasingly complex lattice of measures imposed by the United Nations, United States, European Union, United Kingdom, and other countries. These measures often have different scope, jurisdictional reach, and can directly conflict with one another. This webinar brought industry experts together to discuss the regulatory expectations and challenges in international sanctions compliance from cross-jurisdictions, including real-life case studies and its implications.
