Overview:

The continuing US sanctions against Russia are expected to result in consequences that will go beyond the current Russia-and-Ukraine conflict.

Pribyl (Holland & Knight LLP) provide the audience with an engaging discussion and in-depth analysis of the critical issues surrounding US sanctions against Russia as well as the rising concerns implicated by the current conflict. The speakers will also offer helpful compliance strategies in the rapidly changing landscape.

Key topics that will be covered in this discussion are:

  • Overview of the US Sanction Measures Against Russia
  • Implication of the Imposed Sanctions on Different Areas
  • OFAC Regulations and Enforcement Updates
  • Best Compliance Practice
  • An Outlook of What’s Next
