Sanctions after Brexit

This event explores the impact of Brexit on economic sanctions from different perspectives – law, policy, and industry.  The first panel will discuss the new legal framework in the UK, the second will look at policy implications and sanctions relationships between the UK and the rest of the world (including the EU, UN and USA), and the third panel will examine the impact on industry and trade, including compliance and licensing.  Please come with questions – the evening will be largely conversational and (we hope!) lively Q&A with our enormously experienced panelists, continued at a drinks reception afterwards.
