This session will provide a review of U.S. primary and secondary sanctions, including the re-imposition of nuclear-related sanctions that were lifted to effectuate sanctions relief under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the broader debt, equity, and securities prohibitions introduced under the Ukraine-related and Venezuela sanctions, the comprehensive prohibitions concerning Crimea, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and Syria, as well as those sanctions regimes which are list-based. We will also discuss the effect of the main differences between US and EU sanctions.

The program will also include a discussion of:

  • Legal authorities underlying U.S. and EU sanctions
  • OFAC’s jurisdictional reach
  • Sanctions administered by the U.S. Department of State
  • Potential sanctions-related “red flags”
  • Case studies applying U.S. and EU sanctions prohibitions
  • Potential civil / criminal liability for activity conducted in violation of U.S. and/or EU sanctions
