Sanctions evasion and circumvention: Compliance risks and practical solutions

  • 17:00 to 18:00 GMT

In partnership with Debevoise & Plimpton, Risk Advisory is pleased to invite you to a seminar on ‘Sanctions evasion and circumvention: Compliance risks and practical solutions' on Thursday 29 June. This seminar will take place at Debevoise & Plimpton's London office. The seminar will be followed by a networking reception. 

The US, UK, and EU response to the war in Ukraine has shown that the West is prepared to move quickly and decisively to introduce extensive trade and economic sanctions. But the sanctions ramp-up has gone hand-in-hand with increased attempts to evade or circumvent those restrictions. In turn, US, UK, and EU authorities have issued grave warnings about the consequences of enabling such schemes, even inadvertently. Against this backdrop, businesses feel pressure to design robust compliance programs to detect and prevent circumvention and evasion attempts, which have grown increasingly sophisticated.

In this seminar, sanctions experts from Debevoise & Plimpton LLP and The Risk Advisory Group will set out the compliance challenges posed by sanctions evasion and circumvention schemes, share their experience and lessons learned in this area, and provide practical, forward-looking advice for businesses as they seek to avoid legal and reputational risks.
