International trade partner Jim Slear will lead a complimentary webinar on Thursday, May 29 on “Navigating the Russian and Ukrainian Sanctions Maze: Complying Effectively Amid Uncertainty.”
The webinar, held from 1-2 p.m. EST, is hosted by the Association of Certified Financial Crime Specialists, a worldwide organization for private and public sector professionals who work in a variety of diverse financial crime disciplines.
U.S., European Union and Canadian governments have imposed an increasing number of sanctions targeting Russian and Ukrainian political figures, entities and oligarchs. These sanctions have created serious headaches for many financial institutions and other businesses, which are facing uncertain and swiftly changing sanctions regimes.
Compounding these difficulties, many of the sanctioned individuals and businesses own or control large networks of entities, raising serious questions over when and how institutions should be identifying beneficial owners. In this webinar, Jim will provide guidance on how to make it through the Russian and Ukrainian sanctions maze unscathed.
Attendees will learn:
An overview of U.S., European Union and Canadian sanctions on Russian and Ukrainian entities, officials and business owners
What sanctions on Russian banks mean for U.S., EU and Canadian institutions
Best practices for identifying and dealing with entities owned or connected to sanctioned individuals, banks, and other businesses
What to expect in the near future – industry sectors and entities that might be targets of further sanctions
Jim focuses his practice on international trade compliance and enforcement, including economic and trade sanctions, export regulations, and anticorruption laws. He advises domestic, foreign and multinational clients in a wide array of industries, including aerospace, biomedicine, defense, financial services, insurance, Internet services, manufacturing, semiconductor and telecommunications.
