Navigating Russian Sanctions - The Lessons to Be Learned

With: Azizur Rahman, Zulfi Meerza  Thu, Sept 29 at 2pm BST

Rahman Ravelli hosted a webinar addressing key aspects of the sanctions imposed on Russia and their effect on those with Russian business links.

The event, entitled “Navigating Russian Sanctions - The Lessons to Be Learned’’, was held online on Thursday, September 29 at 9am ET / 2pm BST / 3pm CET.

It involved panellists using their expertise and experience to detail the sanctions that have been imposed on Russia since it invaded Ukraine.

Using a high-level case study, they discussed the key sanctions-related issues being faced by companies around the world that have Russian business links. The panellists also provided guidance and suggestions on how to both identify and navigate the sanctions against Russia that have been introduced by the UK, European Union, the United States and Switzerland.

The webinar was of particular value to UK, EU, Swiss and US companies with activities in Russia, their Russian counterparts and companies with a Russian shareholding structure. It was also of use to law firms around the world that are dealing with the impact of sanctions for clients.

The main discussion points were:

  • Navigating the UK, EU, Swiss and US jurisdictions.
  • Assessing the impact of having a designated person within the structure of a corporate.
  • Applying for a licence to conduct activity prohibited by sanctions.
  • Reporting sanctions-related matters to the authorities.
  • How sanctions affect various business and professional sectors – and how those sectors can manage those issues.
  • Assessing and mitigating the risks facing law firms handling sanctions matters.

The event was moderated by Aziz Rahman, senior partner at Rahman Ravelli. The panellists were;

  • Erich Ferrari, partner at Ferrari and Associates, discussing US sanctions.
  • Zulfi Meerza, senior associate at Rahman Ravelli, discussing UK sanctions.
  • Carla Reyes, partner and attorney at law at Des Gouttes & Associés, discussing Swiss sanctions.

Rahman Ravelli has an in-depth guide to sanctions that answers many questions relating to them.

The "Navigating Russian Sanctions - The Lessons to Be Learned" event happened 20 months ago, Thu, Sept 29 at 2pm BST.
