Sanctions and Export Control

International sanctions and export controls have a global reach – targeting governments, companies and individuals – and can carry severe reputational, criminal, regulatory and financial risk.


Notable highlights include:

  • We successfully de-listed individuals and companies from the EU, Canadian and Swiss sanctions.
  • We advised international energy businesses on the impact of US Iran and Cuba sanctions regimes on their business.
  • We assisted a major European banking institution on developing EU and US sanctions compliance and general sanctions policy.
  • We advised a worldwide logistics company on the unauthorised export of military items.
  • We advised a major Russian financial institution on compliance with international sanctions (value of transactions in excess of US$3 billion).
  • We assisted in the global due diligence and audit of sanctions and export control compliance in a worldwide acquisition.
