Economic sanctions: addressing conflict of laws and the role of counsel
Thursday 3 November (1115 - 1230)
International Commerce and Distribution Committee
North American Regional Forum
This session will address the current state of international economic sanctions laws, including the impact on trade, financial services, technology, and transportation. The panel will focus, in particular, on the impact of counter-sanctions and blocking programmes, including those of the People’s Republic of China and European Union, and how to navigate circumstances in which such laws conflict. As part of that discussion, this panel will address the role of the attorney in advising on sanctions compliance, particularly where there is a conflict of laws, and how attorneys can mitigate their own professional risk under such circumstances.
