Cuba policy under Trump: Extraterritorial implications for global business

26 February 2019

The Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity (Libertad) Act of 1996 strengthens and continues the United States embargo against Cuba. Title III of the Act (also known as "Helms-Burton") authorizes U.S. nationals with claims to confiscated property in Cuba to file suit in U.S. courts against persons that may be "trafficking" in that property.

In this on-demand webinar, Gowling WLG and Akerman provide a status report of the Trump Administration's Cuba policy and the extraterritorial implications to companies and individuals if Title III of Helms-Burton is implemented.
