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 from February 24th to the present.

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?
  • What are the important takeaways from the EU?
  • What licenses are available?
  • Special considerations for humanitarian support
  • Key sanctions targeting financial institutions, insurance and energy
  • Managing the interplay between export controls and sanctions
  • Minimizing potential multi-jurisdictional enforcement risks
  • Potential Russia counter-sanctions
  • Impact on shipping, manufactured goods and technology
