Thirdfort webinar: Corporate Due Diligence in the Age of Sanctions

Thirdfort webinar: Corporate Due Diligence in the Age of Sanctions

The current geopolitical landscape continues to present serious challenges for law firms. Particularly those dealing with overseas clients and navigating frequent rule changes around corporate due diligence.

Much of the existing conversation around sanctions has focused on individuals and their personal exposure. But firms working with businesses who they suspect may have links to sanctioned individuals face a host of new Know Your Business (KYB) responsibilities. Identifying UBOs across multiple territories, often with no clear paper trail, is now a test for even seasoned legal professionals.

In this exclusive online event, an expert panel of risk and compliance professionals will share their best practice advice on how to ensure your KYB processes are up to the task. Hear about how the latest digital tools can help you stay in line with current regulations and protect your firm from repercussions.
