Sanctions Investigations

Allen & Overy’s expert team advises on investigations relating to sanctions, international trade and investment compliance around the world. 

Economic sanctions often evolve or are mandated at short notice, creating a challenge for companies wishing to ensure compliance. Violations can lead to substantial risks, including criminal liability, fines, penalties, loss of business and reputational harm. We support companies facing investigation or prosecution and those working to ensure adherence throughout their operations and in their transactions.

For companies facing sanctions investigation or prosecution, A&O’s experienced litigators, including many former government litigators, can defend and navigate proceedings in the EU, Asia, the Middle East and the U.S. We represent clients from a range of sectors, including advising:

  • A global financial institution in relation to a criminal investigation conducted by the Belgian authorities into the alleged handling of Libyan assets in breach of UN, EU and US sanctions rules against Libya.
  • A company active in the distribution of insulation materials on their compliance with anti-bribery, anti-corruption and international sanctions and embargoes from an EU and U.S. perspective.
  • An international oil and gas major in relation to EU/U.S. sanctions litigation and investigation involving one of its Asian subsidiaries.
