Gearing Up for Helms-Burton Claims: Managing Litigation Risks for Foreign and Domestic Companies Under Revived Cuban Sanctions

This hour-long webinar describes the initiation of the private right of action under the Helms-Burton Act.   It provides an overview of the history of property confiscated by the Cuban government in the wake of the 1959 revolution, and actions the US government took to seek compensation for that confiscated property; an analysis of the act itself; industries that may be potentially affected by litigation brought under Helms-Burton, and; steps parties can take to prepare for any anticipated lawsuits.
