Trade Sanctions

We regularly advise on the sanctions regimes introduced internationally against countries such as Iran, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Iraq and Ivory Coast. Our advice focuses on sanctions adopted at UN, EU, UK, UAE, French and Australian levels, and we regularly co-ordinate advice from other jurisdictions such as the United States, South Korea, Bermuda, Singapore and Switzerland.

We also advise on payment issues with respect to sanctions and appropriate contractual protection. We prepare bespoke clauses and/or advise on the effect of clauses prepared by others or industry standard clauses. We have also advised clients on disputes involving sanctions.
