WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sept. 25, 2019 – Kara M.

Bombach will participate in the plenary session “Navigating Sanctions,” on Oct. 14 at 4:25 p.m., planned to be a lively discussion on the active and increasing enforcement of U.S. sanctions, the expansion of sanctions, and implementation of UK and EU sanctions as Brexit looms. The panel will explore the legal, political, and reputational implications of advising clients on navigating complex and often contradictory sanctions regimes.  The panelists include private practice attorneys, as well as senior government officials from the U.S. and UK agencies that implement and enforce economic sanctions programs.

She places significant emphasis on helping clients achieve practical, workable solutions to complex regulatory situations arising under anti-corruption and anti-bribery measures (U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and OECD Convention), export control laws (EAR and ITAR), anti-boycott laws, and special sanctions (embargoes) maintained by the U.S. government (OFAC and other agencies) against various countries (including Iran, Cuba, and Sudan), entities and individuals. Bombach regularly represents clients in matters before U.S. government agencies, including the U.S. Departments of Commerce, State, Treasury, and Defense.
