Our highly-regarded Business Crime and Regulatory team provides assistance in respect of UK, UN and EU sanctions. We also assist with issues concerning US and other overseas sanctions through our international network of sanctions experts.

The world of sanctions and export controls is constantly evolving, resulting in complex urgent issues for corporates, individuals and governments worldwide. The consequences of failing to adhere to sanctions and export controls are often serious, resulting in significant fines and criminal convictions. 

We regularly help corporates and individuals navigate the complex world of sanctions. This includes assistance with asset freezes, trade restrictions, restrictions on access to financial markets, and restrictions on transactions with specific persons, groups, sectors or countries.

We also assist those who may have breached sanctions, using our vast experience to liaise with investigating authorities and working closely with our reputation management team to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients.
