Iranian Sanctions Programs: Recent Developments

International Trade Webinar
10 October 2012
Presenters: Jerome J. Zaucha

On October 10, 2012 K&L Gates hosted a complimentary webinar, during which Jerome J. Zaucha and Vanessa Edwards, Partners in Washington, D.C. and London, respectively, and Daniel J. Gerkin, Of Counsel in Washington, D.C., discussed recent developments relating to the Iranian sanctions programs administered by the United States, the United Kingdom, and the European Union (EU).

Since July 2010, the United States, the EU, the United Kingdom, and other EU Member States, as well as several of its Member States, have adopted a dizzying array of incremental measures targeting the Iranian nuclear program as well as other international security and foreign policy objectives relating to Iran. Collectively, these measures, the most recent of which was the enactment in the United States of the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act of 2012, create a tangled web of restrictions that have the potential to substantially impact U.S. and non-U.S. companies, including those outside the EU. K&L Gates LLP routinely provides advice relating to these measures and was pleased to present this webinar to assist in untangling the Iranian sanctions web.
