The criminal prosecution and ultimate exoneration of businessman Ali Sadr in a high profile SDNY trial demonstrates the broad reach of US economic sanctions but also the limits on the use of that authority.
Please join members of Steptoe's Investigations and White Collar group as we discuss Steptoe's representation of Ali Sadr and why the case was dismissed following revelations of the governmen's Brady violations. We'll explain why the documents withheld by the government are key to a sanctions defense.
