International risk partner Ama Adams, counsel Brendan Hanifin, and associate Emerson Siegle co-authored a Law360 article following President Trump’s announcement yesterday that the United States will withdraw from the Iran Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). This announcement represents a dramatic change in U.S. sanctions policy, with significant consequences for international businesses and investors. The authors write that it creates substantial uncertainty, as it reflects the beginning of a still-unclear next chapter in U.S. sanctions targeting Iran, and underscores the vital importance of monitoring developments and dedicating sufficient resources to ensure continued compliance.

Additionally, in advance of President Trump’s announcement, The Associated Press quoted Ms. Adams in an article that examined potential impacts of the expected exit from the nuclear deal. Notably, the article was syndicated by a number of other news outlets, including The New York Times, The Washington Post and PBS News Hour.
