Workshops are not Livestreamed – they are In-Person Only

This in-depth workshop is for those new to sanctions, as well as experienced practitioners looking for a refresher on the intricacies and practical impact of new, evolving Russia sanctions. In addition to a comprehensive survey of key developments, participants will benefit from an opportunity to ask questions in a smaller-group, “closed door” setting and gain speaker-prepared reference materials.

Key issues to be covered:

  • How companies are staying compliant with new Russia sanctions
  • What are the key differences between the U.S., UK and EU-and where do they overlap?
  • Managing the interplay between export controls and sanctions
  • What are the important takeaways from recent EU developments?
  • Determining which licenses are available and the challenges to securing licenses
  • Details of the oil price caps
  • Impact of the limits on new investment and services ban
  • Special considerations for humanitarian support
  • Key sanctions targeting financial institutions, insurance and energy industries
  • Minimizing multi-jurisdictional enforcement risks
  • The scope and impact of Russia’s countersanctions
