Sanctions: managing risk and opportunity in an increasingly complex environment


As rapidly evolving global sanctions continue to create unprecedented challenges for multinational businesses, managing risk and pursuing opportunity whilst ensuring good relationships with customers, suppliers and service providers becomes a crucial business priority.

A breach could not only trigger civil and criminal penalties, crippling loss of access to international finance, but also often causes irreversible reputational risk, as well as the challenge of managing internal and external investigations.

Global sanctions and investigations experts Daniel Martin and Anne-Marie Ottaway, Partners at HFW, share key insights to assess and manage Sanctions Risks:

  • Current global trends.
  • Emerging sanctions challenges.
  • Role of sanctions authorities.
  • Practical steps to manage sanction risks
  • Internal and external investigations.
