概述

荷兰和骑士的古巴行动团队正处于帮助客户资本化变化和扩大涉及古巴的市场机会的最前沿。With more than 30 years of experience representing U.S. and international clients who are conducting inbound and outbound business in Latin America and the Caribbean, and more than 20 years counseling clients on Cuba-related issues, our team is uniquely positioned to address client needs and goals with our full-service representation and value-added services around the globe.

Our team is comprised of a deep bench of attorneys – primarily from Holland & Knight’s Latin America, International Trade and Financial Services practices – with extensive experience assisting U.S. and non-U.S. clients on Cuban trade embargo issues across a wide range of industries, including financial services, airlines, shipping lines, insurers, agricultural, and pharmaceutical companies and organizations. We also have a significant cross-border presence from our offices in Miami, New York, Mexico City, Bogotá and beyond. With a multilingual and multicultural understanding, our attorneys frequently counsel clients on Cuban matters and do so with the utmost sensitivity to both politics and the relationship between the United States, Cuba and other key countries.

Although the U.S. embargo and the Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity (Libertad) Act of 1996 (also known as the Helms-Burton Act) are continuing to affect business relations, the change in policy towards Cuba announced by President Obama on December 17, 2014, and the amendment to the Cuban Asset Control Regulations subsequently ensued by the OFAC on January 16 through October 14, 2016, significantly relaxed the sanctions against Cuba, including the increment of commerce and flow of information to and from Cuba, as well as the lifting of certain decades-long travel restrictions. More recently, on November, 9, 2017, the Cuban Asset Control Regulations were further amended to impose additional requirements on the travel authorizations and to restrict direct financial transactions with entities under the structure of the Cuban military, among other less significant changes; however, most of the amendments relaxing the sanctions through 2016 remain in place. Our Cuba Action Team is continually responding to client inquiries relating to the impact of these changes, and provides advice that encompasses both the U.S. perspective as well as the Cuban perspective, as it pertains to the potential business opportunity or transaction. In addition to our thorough knowledge of U.S.-Cuba policy laws, our team remains updated with the very latest regulatory and economic developments that may affect imports and exports, U.S.-Cuba travel and communication, and bank transactions between the two nations as well clients’ business interests within the region.

Cuba Action Team Partner Aymee Valdivia was interviewed by Telemundo 51 Miami about the recent announcement from the Cuban government that Cuban Americans can invest in the island. She explained that the announcement indicates that the government is open to receiving foreign capital from the United States. However, sanctions from the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) still limit the options for potential investors.
