/ International Sanctions
Recent development and future horizon
We are happy to welcome Co-Heads of Allen & Overy’s International Sanctions practice Ken Rivlin from New York and Matthew Townsend from London for the client seminar on "International sanctions – recent developments and the future horizon".
The seminar will look at recent development in international sanctions and export controls, with a particular focus on Iran, Russia, North Korea and Venezuela. We will consider the prospects of a compromise being reached with the US Administration over the future of the Iran nuclear deal, the risk of an escalation of Russian sanctions and what shape future sanctions may take and recent enforcement trends.
We will also look at due diligence that should be carried out by corporates and financial institutions on proposed counterparties, and recent market trends in the type and nature of contractual protections being sought in capital markets, finance and M&A transactions.
