Register Now to Watch On-Demand
Hosted by Thomson Reuters
This year has seen the rapid growth of major multi-nation economic and trade sanctions as a tool of public policy, particularly targeting Russian entities. Many in-house counsel are struggling to keep up with the flood of sanctions changes and to support their businesses in making decisions about supplier, distributor, and other relationships globally.
Practical Law has been quickly responding to the situation, gathering relevant existing materials together to support in-house counsel and creating tracking tools for changing sanctions.
In this one-hour webinar, James Davies, Rob Beardmore, and Deborah Verdile, Senior Editors in Practical Law’s US and UK Commercial Transactions services, will discuss the current state of sanctions and Practical Law resources, including:
- Recent developments in US and UK sanctions on Russia.
- Practical Law content on export and import compliance issues.
- Creation and development of the Practical Law Russia Sanctions and Related Considerations Toolkit.
The webinar will also include a demonstration of relevant Practical Law resources.
