Miranda Ching Joins STEP Hong Kong Webinar on Impact of Russia Sanctions on Trustees
April 12, 2022
In response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, many countries have imposed unprecedented sanctions on its economy and many individuals. Governments have already frozen or even seized assets, and further sanctions are widely expected. What can and can’t law-abiding trust and corporate service providers do in this rapidly evolving environment? Kobre & Kim’s Miranda Ching – a former case controller and prosecutor at the UK’s Serious Fraud Office – discusses at a STEP Hong Kong webinar at 6:00 pm Hong Kong time / 11:00 am London time, Tuesday, April 19, 2022.
The webinar, “The Impact of Sanctions on Trustees,” sheds light on strategies trustees can take in response to various situations. These include if settlors, protectors or beneficiaries are sanctioned; if underlying entities and their assets are targeted; if third parties such as lenders or investment funds are sanctioned; and if the trustee wants to exit particular clients.
Ms. Ching will be joined by moderator Richard Grasby of Appleby, as well as fellow panelists Richard Norridge of Herbert Smith Freehills LLP; Samantha Bradley of Ravenscroft & Schmierer; and Paul Jebely of Withers LLP.
