Trump Administration Allows Private Parties to Sue Under Helms-Burton Act for Assets Seized in Cuba

Jones Day Talks: Trump Administration Allows Private Parties to Sue Under Helms-Burton Act for Assets Seized in Cuba

Breaking more than two decades of precedent, the Trump Administration has allowed the suspension of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act to lapse, thereby enabling eligible individuals and companies to file lawsuits in U.S. courts seeking compensation for assets expropriated by the Cuban government since 1959.

Jones Day’s Chris Pace and Rick Puente discuss the circumstances leading to Title III, how companies can evaluate claims they may have under Title III or exposure they may face under Title III, and potential defenses to Title III lawsuits.
