Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP

Work Department

Monika Zejden-Erdmann is a Principal Associate in Eversheds Sutherland's Competition, EU and Trade practice group. She handles a broad range of international trade law matters, including all aspects of EU/UK and U.S. export control and sanctions laws, WTO rules, anti-dumping, import tariffs, product classification, rules of origin, contractual issues, and trade-related due diligence in the context of M&A transactions. A number of the group's clients see Monika as the first port of call, particularly for export control and sanctions advice. She has significant experience in assisting clients with voluntary disclosures in respect of trade control violations, which have resulted in no further action being taken by authorities. Monika was recently seconded for 2 years to a global energy business, where she provided day-to-day advice on compliance with EU and US sanctions. Monika's practice also encompasses EU and UK regulatory issues. She has also been advising clients on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their cross-border activities.
