Gavin Irwin speaks on the Sanctions Regime: 2020 webinar with LexisNexis Practice and Risk Compliance

In early July, Gavin Irwin (2 Hare Court, London), Genevra Forwood (White & Case, Brussels) and Patrick Murphy (Clyde & Co., London) remotely recorded a webinar on developments in the sanctions regime from UK, EU and US perspectives.

In Gavin’s segment, on UK law, he addresses:

  • Recent changes to UK financial sanctions under the Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018;
  • Enforcement decisions and trends under the Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation’s monetary penalty scheme;
  • Recent activity including: President Trump’s executive order authorising asset freezes and family travel bans against International Criminal Court officials and those assisting in their investigations; and, the introduction of ‘Magnitsky’ sanctions under a new UK regime targeting human rights abusers; and,
  • Horizon scanning in relation to issues likely to arise from the UK leaving the EU regime on 31 December 2020.

The webinar was first broadcast on 22 July 2020 and is available, on demand, to all those who subscribe to Lexis Webinars. Speaker profile links below:
