Rising tensions between prominent trading blocs have resulted in a surge of unilateral sanctions and countermeasures with sometimes extraterritorial effect. This makes it increasingly difficult for multinationals to navigate these often conflicting rules. Not seldomly a company will find itself in a catch 22 situation.
The complex dilemmas and issues are for instance:
- How can US (secondary) sanctions affect non-US operators ?
- The increased use of US secondary sanctions and export controls
- The collision of EU and US sanctions with Russian antitrust laws
- The impact for EU/US operators of China’s new regulations aimed at counteracting the extraterritorial impact of foreign law on Chinese persons
- Status and outlook for the EU Blocking Regulation
- Increased pressure for more active enforcement of EU sanctions and counter sanctions
- Securing your (legal) position in situations of conflicting rules: best practices
