Financial Law Conference #4

A Plethora of Sanctions Regimes

Tuesday, 21 May 2024

10 AM – 5 PM with business lunch

Park Hyatt, Zurich

The sanctions against Russia have come to stay. The European Union, for example, has just adopted its 13th sanctions package. Other jurisdictions will undoubtedly follow.

The conference will focus on the plethora of sanctions regimes, their marked differences and the practical difficulties that arise from this multiplicity (legal professions, client representation, banking).
