Restrictive Measures


Restrictive Measures

Our team provides legal support to clients on a wide range of restrictive measures, sanctions screening and compliance issues, as well as export control restrictions.

Today, many of our clients are faced with restrictive measures when conducting their business and making structural decisions regarding business in Russia, especially when it involves the purchase of foreign components, equipment and services or the sale of products to foreign partners.

BIRCH LEGAL’s team can help navigate through the somewhat vague rules and requirements of Russian and foreign restrictive legislation and export control measures. We are dedicated to providing sound advice and guidance aimed at striking a balance between practical and safe solutions.
