    The past year has seen the significant expansion and increased enforcement of U.S. sanctions programs. Aside from the re-imposition of nuclear sanctions against Iran, there were other key developments that also gained attention. These include the sanctions on seven Russian oligarchs and the new sanctions programs in relation to Nicaragua and U.S. election interference. The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has also emphasized the expanded reach of its authorities and sanctions programs to the cryptocurrency landscape and other novel fields.

    Counsel to companies should expect intensified enforcement activity as economic sanctions remain a vigorous tool of the U.S. foreign policy in 2019 and beyond. The need to secure up-to-date knowledge is crucial in the current regulatory landscape.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders brought together by The Knowledge Group will help businesses and their counsel understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the recent enforcement efforts under the U.S. economic sanctions. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing effective compliance practices in light of the recent developments.

    Key topics include:
    - U.S. Economic Sanctions: Recent Enforcement Developments
    - Compliance Trends and Considerations
    - Mitigating Risks and Pitfalls
    - Best Compliance Practices
    - What Lies Ahead
