Mining At War: Managing the Complexity of a Sanctions-Driven Business Climate | Events to come

With the Russian invasion of Ukraine, sanctions law has moved to the forefront of due diligence in all areas of business law, from financial transactions to mergers and acquisitions. The global mining industry, with its complex cross-border relationships and highly integrated supply chains, is particularly vulnerable to sanctions enforcement.

Sanctions law is complex, politically charged and consequential. Failure to understand and follow these regulations can cost more than money: they carry potential criminal consequences. The supply of critical minerals is intimately tied to state security and any sustained war effort. But that very supply is now potentially hampered by the restrictions imposed by the sanctions imposed by several allied nations in the context of the war in Ukraine.

On June 14, join sanctions law expert Clifford Sosnow, Co-Chair of the International Trade and Investment Group, in conversation with Andrew House, Co-Head of Fasken’s National Security Group, as we thread that difficult needle and tackle the ‘unknown unknown’ of what the new sanctions mean for your day-to-day mining operations and growth plans.
