Doing Business in Iran Amid Evolving Sanctions: Leveraging New Opportunities While Ensuring Compliance
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will provide guidance for counsel to U.S. companies considering doing business in or with companies in Iran. The panel will review sanctions that have been lifted and those that remain in place. The panel will also discuss how to ensure compliance with sanctions and customs requirements in order to take advantage of potential business opportunities in Iran.
- Sanctions—what’s been lifted and what remains
- U.S. sanctions
- EU sanctions
- General License H for non-U.S. entities owned or controlled by a U.S. person
- Licensing policy for commercial passenger aircraft, parts and services

The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What business activities are permissible for U.S. companies with respect to Iran? How does the lifting of sanctions provide new opportunities for U.S. businesses?
- What constraints does the General License impose on transactions in and with Iran for foreign companies owned or controlled by U.S. persons?
- What steps should companies take to promote OFAC and export control compliance with respect to Iran?
