S&C Critical Insights - Risks of Expropriation or Asset Seizure Impacting Global InvestorsApril 14, 2022
On this episode of S&C’s Critical Insights, Stewart Robertson and Andrew Finn discuss the rapidly emerging expropriation and asset seizure risks to foreign companies operating in Russia and around the world.
In response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, many multinational companies have announced plans to suspend or otherwise scale back their operations in Russia. Russia’s Parliament is currently considering laws that would allow its government to seize assets of those companies or put them under temporary government management.
Stewart and Andrew explore the practical steps companies can take and consider in preparing for this type of possible action.
