SANCTIONS

Sanctions are a powerful tool governments, and international organisations use to enforce foreign policy, maintain international security, and combat illicit activities such as terrorism, human rights abuses, and corruption. Unlike ever before, sanctions are at the forefront of many discussions and debates in the Baltics as well as the whole of Europe. Staying up to date and having knowledgeable partners helps maintain business stability while simultaneously mitigating huge risks and avoiding pitfalls. It is crucial for businesses operating on an international scale, dealing with import and export, as well as maintaining contacts with partners in CIS.

FORT can help businesses operating in Lithuania and the Baltic States who are trying to understand and comply with the various sanctions regimes, to avoid severe penalties and extensive reputational damage.

The Role of FORT in Navigating Sanctions Compliance

FORT offers expert guidance and support to businesses facing the complex landscape of sanctions compliance. With a deep understanding of local and international sanctions regulations, FORT helps clients navigate these challenges, ensuring they remain in line with relevant laws and avoid potential pitfalls. We are always in check with the latest sanction revisions.

Economic Sanctions - Overview

Restrictions on trade, financial transactions, and investments involving designated individuals, entities, or countries are more important than ever. With geopolitical changes all around you, it is vital to understand how your organisation can mitigate risks and prevent damage to supply chains or reputation. The landscape of sanctions is continuously evolving and changing. Having solid legal backing in this area is greatly helpful.  

The Expertise of FORT in Sanctions Compliance

FORT legal experts have extensive experience advising clients on sanctions compliance matters. This includes understanding the scope and applicability of different sanctions regimes and ensuring effective due diligence. In addition, we help with assisting, licensing, and reporting requirements. By partnering with us, businesses operating in Lithuania and the Baltic States can confidently navigate the complex world of sanctions compliance and protect their operations from potential risks and penalties.
