In April 2018, the US sanctioned seven Russian tycoons and their businesses. A month later, President Donald Trump ordered the reimposition of sanctions on Iran, threatening the continued implementation of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). In a bid to safeguard their interests, some have sought to conceal sanctioned beneficial owners or establish ostensibly unconnected affiliates. But with the threat of secondary sanctions looming, how can your business protect itself from unknowingly engaging with such counterparties exposed to sanctions?
In this webinar, our experts will bring you up to speed with the key sanctions changes, give insight on the trends we are seeing, and provide real-world examples of how we can help you mitigate the risks.
At the end of the webinar, there will be an opportunity for a short Q&A. A podcast will be available following the event.
Associate, Middle East & North Africa
Margaret Allen works, almost exclusively, on Iranian matters. Much of her work focuses on mapping relationships between publicly-listed Iranian companies and the Iranian military and state apparatus. In particular, she has examined closely the ways in which sanctioned entities such as the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) and, the Headquarters for Executing the Order of the Imam (SETAD/EIKO), and bonyads such as the Astan Quds Razavi Foundation have invested in – and exert control over – sections of the Iranian economy.
Senior Associate, Russia, Eastern Europe & Eurasia
Dmitry Sachkov is a senior associate who works specifically with clients active in Russia, Ukraine and other former Soviet states. He specialises in anti-corruption investigations and has worked extensively on the implications of international sanctions on Russia’s economy and political landscape.
