Timely knowledge is often crucial for business. Have you already discovered what risks your business now faces with the recent updates to the U.S. sanctions regime?


For example, the impact of North Korean sanctions on Finnish companies with suppliers and subsidiaries in China, India and Russia are complex and sometimes roundabout.


Join us for concrete and practical tips on how to structure business transactions to avoid running afoul of the U.S. government’s recent updates.


Nancy Fischer, Partner at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, will cover the future of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and what President Trump’s congressional certification requirement will mean for your company. She will also discuss customer due diligence challenges, such as screening third parties against ever-changing U.S. and E.U. sanctions lists. Further complicating these matters is the ongoing Russia-related sanctions compliance.


The session will include company case studies to illustrate key points and a Q&A for you to address your specific needs.
