The Big Compliance Festival 2020

Cadwalader White Collar Defense and Investigations associate Shruti Chandhok will be speaking on the "Meeting the Challenge of Sanctions Compliance in an Increasingly Uncertain World" panel at the International Compliance Association's The Big Compliance Festival 2020.

In recent years, escalating global political tensions have resulted in a fast-moving and unsettled international sanctions landscape. The coronavirus pandemic has magnified the challenge of sanctions compliance, introducing further uncertainties. In this fireside discussion, the panelists will discuss some of the key changes and challenges in sanctions over the past year and offer up some potential solutions to overcome these including: 

  • How to manage sanctions risk resulting from disruptions to supply chains and cross-border transactions post-COVID-19;
  • How to maintain an effective sanctions compliance programme amidst ongoing political uncertainty, notably in the run up to the US presidential elections and the UK’s departure from the EU.
