Sanctions

Our sanctions compliance teams provide expert offshore legal advice on the implications of trade and economic sanctions that is timely, practical and cost effective.

We advise a wide range of institutions, both locally and globally, on sanctions law issues for each of the five jurisdictional laws that we practice - Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands (BVI), the Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey.

We also have established arrangements in place to obtain advice rapidly in respect of other sanctions regimes, and to assist our clients in getting the complete picture and a full understanding of any relevant sanctions exposure.

Given the increased relevance of the issues faced, the serious potential repercussions of non-compliance, and the fast-moving, politically informed nature of the area, sanctions issues are dealt with by our most experienced lawyers, including those with experience in law enforcement thereby being able to provide our clients with unique insight in this area.

We provide sanctions legal advice arising from both corporate transactions and in the course of our clients' normal business. Advice has also covered alleged breaches and assisting with policies and procedures. We assist with the process of interacting with the various authorities in our jurisdictions and, where appropriate, we provide advice in respect of sanctions licence applications.
