JONES DAY TALKS®: Helms-Burton Risks Continue for Companies with Investments and Operations in Cuba
The uncertainty continues for companies potentially at risk since the Trump Administration lifted the suspension on Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, a provision that empowers U.S. nationals with claims to confiscated property in Cuba to file suit in U.S. courts against entities "trafficking" in those assets.
Rick Puente and Chris Pace review recent case developments, discuss the appointment of new National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien, and talk about what parties possibly affected by Helms-Burton should expect next.
