Under the Trump administration, the past year saw a flurry of developments with respect to the economic sanctions administered by the US Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”). Significant changes were made to many sanctions programs, including a new policy course on Cuba sanctions and a ratcheting up of sanctions against other countries such as North Korea and Venezuela. Enforcement actions increased from the previous year, and more non-financial companies found themselves in OFAC’s crosshairs than in the past.

Please join Mayer Brown partners Alex Lakatos and Ori Lev and counsel Margaret Sales as they discuss OFAC developments in 2017, including:

  • Changes in the sanctions programs targeting Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Russia and Venezuela
  • Significant OFAC enforcement actions
  • Enforcement trends
