Financial sanctions & export controls

Recent political events continue to expand the scope and effectiveness of sanctions and export controls as tools of governmental foreign policy, looking to exert influence and control against designated rogue states, entities and individuals.

Given London’s prominent role as a global financial centre and with the UK a permanent member of the UN Security Council, sanctions are at the forefront of UK foreign policy decision-making. London sanctions lawyers are therefore exceptionally well-placed to advise individuals or entities who are the subject of or concerned with sanctions designations not just in the UK but also in the United States, EU and the United Nations.

Janes Solicitors have extensive and in-depth experience in dealing with the sanctions related issues. We have been engaged by international clients on a wide range of cases involving designations of individuals by the Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI), the US Treasury Department Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), The United Nations Security Council and the EU Commission’s sanctions department. We advise clients who are not designated but who have been affected by the implementation of sanctions, such as suspension of payments by deposit banks and freezing of accounts. We have advised individuals and companies on their liabilities with regard to possible sanctions breaches and enforcement. We have achieved notable successes on behalf of our clients.

If you have been affected by sanctions and export controls or wish to seek advice on any aspect of this prominent and developing area of law, please contact one of our expert sanctions lawyers.
