Genevra Forwood co-leads the firm’s EU and UK Sanctions Teams, which work in close collaboration with the US Sanctions Team to deliver comprehensive sanctions advice.

Her sanctions practice is wide-ranging, spanning compliance advice in relation to business dealings involving sanctioned jurisdictions or listed persons (in particular companies listed under the Russian capital market sanctions); advising on the enforcement of judgments and arbitral awards against listed persons; handling internal investigations and interactions with sanctions authorities; advising on the implications of the EU Blocking Statute; crafting sanctions-specific contractual clauses and assessing sanctions risk in the context of due diligence. Genevra is also following closely the emergence of the UK’s post-Brexit sanctions regime.

Genevra regularly assists clients in designing their internal compliance policies and training, and often gives presentations and internal training on the topic of sanctions.
