In light of the current news around asset sales by the targets of sanctions, Dan discusses how companies can protect themselves and the level of investigation necessary to ensure compliance with current regulations.

In the article he stresses that “in the face of a sale, a company needs to do an even higher level of due diligence to assure that an entity is truly separated from its former owners.”
