Getting Real: A 'Video Podcast' Series: An Interview with Luciano Racco

Hosted by Foley Hoag partner Veronica Renzi to generate dialogue among and build community with women lawyers

These days, we are looking at this widespread remote working scenario as an opportunity to enhance business relationships by reexamining professional boundaries and relying on means such as video conferences and phone calls. This "video podcast" series consists of discussions with female and male attorneys about issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope you find them interesting and helpful and we are grateful to all the lawyers who made time to talk with us.

Guest: Luciano Racco, Counsel, Foley Hoag LLP

In today's episode (recorded on January 7, 2021), Veronica gets real with Luciano Racco, co-chair of Foley Hoag's Trade Sanctions and Export Controls practice. Luciano shares his views on what to expect in 2021 in the areas of sanctions and export controls with a focus on a likely tightening of controls related to China and Russia, and the possibility of some sanctions against Iran being rolled back. Luciano also discusses returning to private practice after many years as in-house counsel and his experience starting a new position during the COVID-19 pandemic.
