UK: OFSI ISSUES SANCTIONS AND LEGAL FEES GUIDANCE

On 28 October, a blog port from OFSI says that, in acknowledging the importance of a person’s ability to be receive legal advice and representation, OFSI has long had a position of not prohibiting the provision of legal advice to a designated person under an asset freeze. Payment for legal services, including payment for legal services provided on credit, by contrast has required a licence.  However, OFSI has issued a general licence to permit the payment of legal fees owed by individuals and entities designated under either of these regimes.
