The state's largest and most important export event of the year, the Massachusetts Export Center’s Export Expo provides a forum for exporters to connect with the wide range of export resources available in Massachusetts while learning about issues that impact their day-to-day export operations. The event will include an exhibit area featuring government, non-profit and private sector service providers serving the export community. Coinciding with the exhibition, the Export Center will convene workshops and roundtable discussions throughout the day on a variety of export-related topics.

Russia sanctions have been one of the dominant issues of the export regulatory landscape in recent years. Nixon Peabody partner Alexandra Lopez-Casero will present “U.S. Economic Sanctions Update,” in which she will discuss the following topics:

  • The U.S. sanctions related to Russia, including requirements for compliance
  • Compliance with the OFAC 50% rule, including its particular relevance in Russia and best practices for screening due diligence
  • The trickle-down impact that the sanctions have had on exports, including license requirements and financing of transactions
  • Guidance for meeting the challenges associated with these sanctions, as well as practical steps for mitigating risk
