Every company that operates in the global marketplace runs into complex U.S. economic sanctions and trade boycott issues. The rules administered by the Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and other U.S. government agencies are changing almost constantly.  Global sanctions compliance grows more complex every day – as do the stakes for non-compliance. Russian sectoral sanctions, the boycott on Crimea, denied party screening challenges, fast-changing situations in Iran and Cuba (open to new opportunities in many sectors), and other complex sanctions issues, require deep knowledge and fast-paced decisions. 
 
Join Kelley Drye international trade attorneys Eric McClafferty and Rob Slack for this one-hour webinar, where they will discuss recent sanctions developments and share insights and strategies to make legal compliance more effective, thorough and manageable. 
 
Topics will include:

  • Understanding the real reach of U.S. sanctions laws
  • Do’s and Don’ts for trade under the new rules for Cuba and Iran
  • Limits on doing business in Russia and Crimea
  • Avoiding hidden traps in denied party and Specially Designated National screening

The information will be geared toward helping in-house counsel, CEOs, CFO’s, compliance personnel and sales executives to understand and comply with these complex laws and regulations.
