2012 saw significant expansion and refinement of international sanctions targeting Iran and Syria. The speakers will review these developments, examining how governments, companies and their advisers have grappled with the concepts of extra-territoriality, proportionality and unilateral action. They will also ask what does 2013 hold? 

The event will be followed by a reception.

This event is organized in association with Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP.
