After our 2018 US sanctions overview, published on January 7, 2019, Dentons now proudly present our EU Sanctions 2018 Year-in-Review, which confirms that on both sides of the Atlantic, 2018 was equally busy in terms of sanctions policy and enforcement. 

The EU review examines the developments related to the sanctions on Russia, Syria and Venezuela, the EU's reaction to the US withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), legislative initiatives taken as a consequence of Brexit and prospectively post-Brexit, enforcement actions by Member States and the recent case law of European Courts.
