Sanctions and restrictive measures

Our sanctions and restrictive measures practice advise on all aspects of Overseas Territories and European Union sanctions law.

We are experienced in the provision of bespoke services and products to assist clients with application to various governmental agencies and authorities.

We are instructed by clients locally and internationally on various high risk cases to deal with project managing sanctions cases so that they are resolved in the best possible circumstances. To this extent, we frequently make applications to the local competent authorities on various sanctions regimes – most notably – Iran, Egypt, Russia, Syria, etc. to obtain various approvals to allow stake-holders to be able to conduct business and adopt a risk-based approach to compliance while operating with high profile clients while at the same time complying with all of the applicable law and regulation surrounding the handling of the business.

We work regularly with the following agencies on various sanctions related cases:

  • UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office
  • Her Majesty’s Treasury
  • the European External Action Service
  • the United Nations
