[2019-11-19] EU Seminar with Jones Day

On Tuesday 19 November, the EU Seminar at Jones Day took place, about the new European Commission and update on the EU’s international trade and economic sanctions framework. Though quite technical, we were pleased to welcome a nice group of interested members. We would like to give special thanks to the two speakers of the seminar, Rick van ‘t Hullenaar and Yvan Desmedt, both partners at Jones Day, for their interesting presentations, and of course to Jones Day in general for hosting this event at their beautiful office in Amsterdam.

Dujat and Jones Day are pleased to invite you to join our upcoming EU seminar on Tuesday 19 November in Amsterdam

Free trade is challenged by actions of major nations as trade instruments and economic sanctions are used in geopolitical strategies. Companies operating across the globe can be faced with these policies in their operations having to reconcile potentially conflicting legal requirements and extra-territorial enforcement.

During this seminar, we will provide an outline of the EU’s economic sanctions framework, dive into major developments and discuss practical considerations for companies to meet the current challenges. The appointment of the new European Commission will also allow us to discuss its composition and main strategic objectives, and analyze the European Commission’s agenda in this area. 

Our two speakers include Rick van ‘t Hullenaar and Yvan Desmedt, both partners at Jones Day (with Rick starting on 1 November 2019) with significant experience in EU law who have been dividing their time between Brussels and Amsterdam and have been advising clients on complex sanctions and trade regulation issues.
