Course Materials

This CLE course will provide guidance for counsel to U.S. companies doing business in or with companies in Iran. The panel will discuss how to meet the evolving U.S. sanctions requirements and ensure effective compliance with the restrictions, and leverage opportunities presented by the recent changes in sanctions.


On Jan. 20, 2014, the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Treasury announced the suspension of some sanctions against Iran. The sanctions relief is the result of the Joint Plan of Action (JPOA) agreed upon in Nov. 2013 by the U.S., U.K., Germany, France, Russia, China and Iran with respect to Iran's nuclear program. 

The JPOA presents new opportunities for companies in the areas of crude oil, petrochemicals, Iran's auto industry and associated services, aviation, and more. However, with these new opportunities come substantial risks of which companies must be aware.

Counsel to companies doing business in Iran or seeking to leverage the new opportunities there must understand the evolving landscape of Iran sanctions and be prepared to take steps to mitigate the risks involved.

Listen as our authoritative panel examines the changing Iran sanctions and the new opportunities presented for companies as well as the associated risks. The panel will offer strategies for compliance with the current sanctions.



  1. U.S. sanctions on Iran
    1. Recent changes in sanctions
    2. Sanctions in place
    3. How sanctions are evolving
  2. Leveraging opportunities presented by recent sanctions changes
  3. Strategies for complying with sanctions


The panel will review these and other key questions:

  • What opportunities and risks are presented by the most recent changes in Iran sanctions?
  • What business activities, if any, are permissible in Iran?
  • What steps can companies take to promote compliance as sanctions on Iran evolve?

Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
