Miami partner and Cuba Task Force Chair Aliette DelPozo Rodz will speak at the Cuban American Bar Association’s (CABA) Cuba Conference on Friday, September 23 at 3:15 pm at the Florida International University College of Law. The 90-minute panel discussion will address foreign investment in Cuba, with an emphasis on legal, economic and structural issues affecting foreign investors.
Aliette represents international businesses with claims in the U.S. as well as American clients with claims abroad and regularly assists clients with their business prospects in Cuba based on the recent changes in U.S. regulations.
“When it comes to doing business in Cuba, we are treading in tenuous territory,” said Aliette. “The situation is evolving rapidly and we are seeing positive developments. However, there is a misconception that you can jump on a flight and start a business tomorrow. That is not the case. U.S. Business owners need to understand the process and meet the requirements of both U.S. and Cuban laws and we are happy to help them navigate through these new waters.”
Rodz will analyze the opportunities, requirements and challenges facing businesses and entrepreneurs looking to do business in Cuba. Tampa partner Olga Pina will be a panelist on the U.S. legal and regulation developments in Cuba concerning commerce, travel and finance.
The two-day conference, which runs from September 23 through September 24 will address a variety of topics including political, legal and economic conditions on the island. For information about attending the conference, visit CABA.
