WorldECR Export Controls and Sanctions Forum: Hong Kong
Barbara Linney will be speaking at the WorldECR Export Controls and Sanctions Forum in Hong Kong on November 22, 2018. Linney will present "Developments in U.S. Sanctions Policy."
The session will focus on American unilateral sanctions against Iran, Russia, and North Korea, including the enhanced secondary sanctions provisions of CAATSA – all of which create potential exposures for both U.S. and non-U.S. companies. Her presentation will explain the fundamentals of U.S. sanctions policy, the impact for non-U.S. businesses of U.S. withdrawal from the JCPOA (the "Iran nuclear deal"), the ramping up of sanctions against Russia, and the need for enhanced due diligence, not least (but not only) around transactions involving North Korea.
