ICC Arbitration Forum : Sanctions & Arbitration

07 Jul 2022

Online English
15:00 (CET)

In response to Russia's attack on Ukraine, the EU, the US and many other countries have imposed extensive sanctions and new legislative packages are constantly being put in place. Companies have to respond quickly to the continuously changing regulatory environment while ensuring that the sanctions are fully implemented. The penalties for violations are high.

What are companies doing to adjust their internal compliance to this new situation? What are the challenges, how are companies adapting to the constantly changing legal environment? What is the role of the senior management in this context? And what is the role of arbitration in the context of the sanctions imposed by or against Russia?


In this webinar, representatives from industry and the financial sector will share their experiences, how they are handling the new geopolitical challenge and will provide recommendations for other companies.
About the event series: From May to November 2022, ICC Germany is organising the ICC Arbitration Forum together with the ICC International Court of Arbitration, partners and national and international experts to discuss current issues and pressing questions in international arbitration and promote Germany as a place of arbitration.
