Webinar: Wednesday, June 6, 2018 | 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. EDT
On May 8, President Trump announced the United States’ withdrawal from participation in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the landmark 2015 agreement that eased sanctions on Iran in exchange for curbs on Iran’s nuclear program. The U.S. government’s withdrawal likely will have major ripple effects outside the United States, particularly in Europe, where many companies that re-engaged with Iran in accordance with the terms of the JCPOA will once again potentially be subject to steep U.S. penalties if they continue to do business in Iran.
Please join Wiley Rein International Trade Practice partners Dan Pickard and Jack Shane, of counsel Lori Scheetz, and senior public policy advisor Nova Daly for a discussion on the key risk areas as the Iran sanctions “snap back” into effect.
Topics Will Include:
- The primary and secondary sanctions that are being re-imposed by the U.S. government
- The potential implications of turning back the clock on foreign subsidiaries of U.S. companies
- What the reinstated Iran sanctions mean for non-U.S. companies in key sectors, such as the financial services, energy and petrochemical, insurance and reinsurance, automotive, and shipping industries
- The scope of the “wind-down” authorizations
- This event is complimentary but advance registration is required.
- Webinar instructions and materials will be distributed prior to the webinar. For more information, please email Lynne Stabler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
