Navigating the Heightened Sanctions and Export Controls Enforcement Environment

Navigating the Heightened Sanctions and Export Controls Enforcement Environment Webinar

  • Thursday, October 19, 2023 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Please join us for a webinar on "Navigating the Heightened Sanctions and Export Controls Enforcement Environment."

Companies are facing an unprecedented increase in sanctions and export controls enforcement by the U.S. government. Investigations are proliferating, penalties are increasing exponentially, regulatory restrictions are tightening, and government officials are promising even more corporate enforcement in the future. As a result, companies operating internationally must navigate greater trade controls enforcement risk than ever before.

Please join our expert panel of White Collar and Trade Controls lawyers on Thursday, October 19, at 12 p.m. (EDT) as they discuss civil and criminal enforcement trends, the types of conduct drawing the most intense government scrutiny, and how to respond when a company finds itself in the enforcement crosshairs.

The program will feature Covington partners who have handled some of the most sensitive and complex trade controls enforcement matters in recent years, including the Seagate Technology matter that resulted in the largest civil-only Commerce Department export controls settlement. Our roster of leading trade controls practitioners and former high-level U.S. government officials will offer “lessons learned,” as well as practical tips for minimizing risk in today’s increased climate of enforcement.
