On 5 March 2019, after five years of litigation, the Council had confirmed the removal of all sanctions on Mr Andriy Klyuyev. This followed the submission of detailed representations, filed by Mr Klyuyev and his legal team, regarding the inadequacy of the evidence relied upon by the Council.
Brian Kennelly QC and Jason Pobjoy acted for Mr Klyuyev.
Brian and Jason have extensive expertise in challenging and advising on EU and international asset-freezing sanctions, and are recognised as leading sanctions lawyers in the EU. They are currently representing more than 30 individuals and entities in over a dozen challenges to asset-freezing regimes before the General Court of the EU and the Court of Justice. Many of their recent cases have resulted in the de-listing of the sanctioned individuals. They also have considerable experience in advising on sanctions compliance issues.
