Keeping pace with the fast-changing international sanctions landscape can be a struggle. The geopolitical environment is moving quickly, and it is increasingly challenging for (re)insurers to understand how primary and secondary sanctions may impact underwriting decisions, wordings and compliance.

This market briefing will cover a variety of related topics including an update on US Secondary Sanctions as well as London market sanctions wordings in light of the recent Mananchochet case. GDPR and Brexit will also be covered, providing an update on the latest international sanctions environment and explain the significance of recent legal decisions, including insights from the only case on US secondary sanctions to have come before the English Courts, in which Elborne Mitchell is acting.
