In the context of economic sanctions, it is crucial for companies that they receive robust legal advice in their undertaking, given that the economic sanctions are diverse, and their implementation is complex. These sanctions are originally a diplomatic tool used as an “incentive” for the peaceful settlement of certain disputes between states or between States and international organizations. The international sanctions, that have recently attracted the most attention, are those imposed on the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The recourse to a law firm practicing public and private international law with a practical and theoretical understanding of these different regimes is therefore necessary when companies or NGOs wish to work with countries under partial or total embargo, targeted by one or more individual or sectoral restrictive measures.
LTO undertakes, in this respect, to represent companies and organizations for any negotiation before the public authorities, national and international jurisdictions competent in matters related to the application of laws and regulations relating to economic sanctions.
Sophie Gabillot, a partner at LTO, has solid experience in the field of economic sanctions and will therefore be your privileged interlocutor. Her field experience enables her to easily conduct legal audits of your projects in countries subject to sanctions (e.g. Venezuela, Russia, North Korea, Iran, Syria) and will provide you with the most suitable advice to ensure their compliance.
