Al Tamimi & Company’s Financial Crime Team and Akrivis Law Group PLLC : Seminar – Economic Sanctions after the Iran Nuclear Deal – US and UAE Perspectives
On the 24th of February, Al Tamimi’s Financial Crime team, in collaboration with Akrivis Law Group PLLC (Washington, DC, USA), hosted an informative seminar entitled ‘Economic Sanctions after the Iran Nuclear Deal – US and UAE Perspectives’.
Ibtissem Lassoued, Partner Financial Crime Al Tamimi & Company, Andrew Hudson, Senior Associate Financial Crime Al Tamimi & Company and Farhad R. Alavi, Managing Partner, Akrivis Law Group provided the attendees with an outline and comparison of sanctions regimes in the UAE and the US before and after Implementation Day. This issue is becoming increasingly important to businesses in the UAE, given the country’s strategic position as a trade hub in the Middle East region, and with the prevalence of the US Dollar in cross-border transactions, businesses across the globe need to be aware of the US regulations.
The event was a great success and well attended, indicating the relevance of the subject matter to our clients.
