Practical regulatory & investigative advice in an unpredictable world
We offer clients a range of technical and practical regulatory advice both locally and regionally, wherever they are based
Our regulatory team is made up of experienced contentious and non-contentious professionals, including former regulators, technical advisors and seconded compliance officers. They provide multidisciplinary advice across all business areas and advise clients on regulatory and compliance issues.
This includes defending all aspects of enforcement proceedings and updating and training clients on legislative developments.
We work alongside in-house compliance teams and have particular experience advising on financial crime, including fraud, bribery, money laundering, cartel activity and breach of sanctions; and have represented defendants in some of the largest fraud claims of recent years.
Our active and informed approach ensures our clients can operate effectively, whilst protecting their business interests.
Understanding the risks surrounding trade sanctions is essential for organisations involved in trading, transporting and insuring. Clyde & Co is acknowledged as a market leader in this area.
Our expertise is supported by our sector knowledge and extensive experience of working in new and emerging markets. The growing number and complexity of sanctions regimes means that organisations not only have to look to their domestic law for regulatory guidance but also to the laws of other jurisdictions, in particular the US and the European Union.
Many international trading companies operate in or around challenging jurisdictions and this can make them liable to sanctions legislation. Understanding the risks is essential, and getting the approach and risk management wrong can result in high financial penalties, substantial reputational damage and market perceptions that can be difficult to alter.
We have recently advised many trading, transportation and insurance clients on the implications of the imposition of trade sanctions against Iran, Syria and Libya by the US and the EU, and the recent actions against Russia regarding the Ukraine.
