    On March 29, the new UK Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act will come into force. The Act allows for sanctions on people who commit gross human rights violations under the so-called ‘Magnitsky amendment’. The UK Government will gain the power to designate persons being sanctioned not only by name, but also by description and this will give rise to significant compliance issues. It will also ensure that the review mechanism is tightened, preventing such persons immediately challenging regulations before the courts.

    In recent months, not only human rights violations, but also cyber security and chemical attacks have resulted in calls for sanctions. It is therefore very likely that in the coming years differences in foreign policy between the EU, the US and the UK will greatly affect the sanctions landscape.

    This conference will focus on the impact of this development on corporates and financial institutions; examine the implications for enforcement and litigation issues and aim to give practical guidance.

    Keynotes, expert speakers and panel sessions will cover the following topics:

    • UK sanctions policy
    • Recent developments in the US Sanctions regime
    • Recent developments in the EU sanctions regime
    • Impact of sanctions regimes on corporates and financial institutions and the global risks from a business perspective
    • Enforcement processes in the UK
    • Sanctions challenges and litigation issues
    • Trends and looking forward – interactive session for practitioners
