 “The launch of www.tradesanctions.com couldn’t be more timely, with the global landscape of sanctions changing rapidly as to Iran and other countries, with significant impacts on enforcement and compliance risks,” said Steven W. Pelak, Holland & Hart Partner and former Principal Deputy Chief and Acting Chief, Counterespionage Section, National Security Division of the Department of Justice.  “Changes in the regulatory framework will require dynamic compliance programs and affirmative measures to address changing risks in  international commerce,” said Trip Mackintosh, the senior Holland & Hart Partner in the group who has been export control and trade sanctions counsel for private industry for over 25 years. 

An international leader in export control/trade sanctions defense and compliance, the trade sanctions team draws on the sophisticated experience of practitioners with substantial government and private practice backgrounds.  Members of the team who will contribute articles to www.tradesanctions.com include Of Counsel Jeremy P.
