Sanctions & Export Controls

International sanctions regimes are highly complex, dynamic, and prone to change at short notice. Acting in violation of economic sanctions and export control regulations may have serious negative consequences for businesses and the persons involved, including criminal and civil liability. A breach may also have significant reputational impact and potentially damage a company’s relationship with business partners and financial institutions.
