Tuesday, May 24, 2022
5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. (PST)
Location: Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch LLP
1117 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA
LES Silicon Valley is pleased to co-sponsor this event with Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch LLP and the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Silicon Valley.
As the Ukraine war rages, and US-China tensions continue, the US and other countries have imposed an unprecedented level of sanctions and export controls on dealing with Russia, China and others. These are having a huge impact on both direct activities with those countries (such as deal making), but also indirect activities (such as re-exports by intermediaries, as well as technical disclosures even within the US to nationals of sanctioned countries). The penalties and reputational hits can be severe. Learn the latest developments, and how to stay out of trouble, from a panel in this area!
There will be plenty of time for networking among friends (old and new) before and after the presentation. Food and drinks will be provided.
