Coping with the Use of Export Controls and Sanctions as Tools of Foreign Policy

Event Description

Online registration is now closed.  To register, email Tram Nguyen at

All bar association programming is currently REMOTE-PARTICIPATION ONLY. There is NO in-person attendance until further notice.

Deadline to Register: December 14, 2020

The goal of this webinar will be to introduce the various ways that U.S. economic sanctions and export controls are being used as foreign policy tools, and then discuss common compliance questions that arise as a result of those actions. The United States has increased its use of export controls and sanctions to oppose strategic adversaries such as Iran, Russia, Venezuela and, most recently, China. All companies engaging in international business should be aware of these trends and maintain risk-based procedures for managing their compliance responsibilities.  The program will outline best practices that companies can use to cope with new export restrictions. In addition, the webinar will touch on potential changes in these trends that could take place as a result of a new presidential administration.
