The program will describe the Trump Administration’s broadening of economic sanctions and export controls with respect to investment in and supply of goods and services to Iran and Russia.  The focus will be on extraterritorial application of those restrictions to U.S.-related transactions involving Japan. The seminar will be presented by Harry Clark, partner in Washington D.C. office and Chair of the International Trade & Compliance Group.
