Financial sanctions are increasingly used to combat terrorism and to discourage regimes or individuals from acting in ways condemned by the international community or individual nations. Compliance is not always straightforward, particularly where different sanctions regimes collide and impose conflicting obligations. This article examines financial sanctions legislation in the UK and the US, and provides guidance to companies operating in those jurisdictions on ensuring compliance.
