Client Note on International Sanctions July 2021

We wanted to create a guidance note for you that would make you aware of the imposition of international sanctions and how they may apply.

International sanctions are put in place as a consequence of global political problems. Sanctions are adopted by a country or group of countries against another state or individual(s) in order to elicit a change in their behaviour.

The United Nations, the European Union, the United Kingdom, the United States of America along with many other countries all have their own specific sanctions regimes which they impose on other states.

We have attached in our download section below a handy guide to sanctions and their implications.
