Along with our international partners, we advise clients on the implications of sanctions on specific transactions, develop and implement global compliance programs and training, as well as conduct internal investigations, manage relationships with regulators, and defend against criminal or civil litigation should the need arise.

Our recent experience has included advice in relation to sanctions on specific transactions across Africa, as well as an internal investigation and representation of a client in relation to the DOJ’s investigation into Huawei for breaches relating to sanctions imposed on Iran.

Fulcrum Chambers is one of very few firms who have a real expertise in corporate white-collar defence and compliance processes. This comprehensive expertise allows them to provide a pragmatic, tailored advice to companies on compliance processes, as they are able to draw from their expertise in criminal defence.
