LIDW: The evolving impact of sanctions on commercial contracts

Date: Thursday 18th May
Time: 4-6pm
Venue: Withers LLP, 20 Old Bailey, London EC4M 7AN

The unprecendented wave of sanctions and countersanctions imposed since February 2022 has raised numerous legal challenges for businesses. Commercial contracts (including finance, supply and JV arrangements) have been significantly impacted and ongoing litigations and arbitrations have faced similar disruption.

As part of London International Disputes Week (‘LIDW’), this session will identify and analyse these problems and discuss ideas for overcoming them. Participating firms include Littleton Chambers, Withers, LK Law and Lewis Baach Kaufman Middlemiss.

If you are in or around London, join us in person at 20 Old Bailey, with the chance to network at our jointly-hosted reception after the discussion. However, for those who cannot join us in person, there will be a link which will allow you to tune in virtually. If you would like to attend in-person, please register here.
