Complimentary for In-house Counsel and Members of Corporate Legal Departments
The American Lawyer, Corporate Counsel, and Focus Latin America present the annual U.S. - Cuba Legal Summit at the University Club of New York on December 1, 2015.
With the newly opened borders of Cuba, many see a great opportunity to expand business with our neighbors to the South. A mere 90 miles off the coast of Florida, Cuba offers an untapped marketplace for business expansions and M&A in a rich up-and-coming Marketplace. Experts warn, however, that foreign investors will be looking for a functional legal system and a willingness to take disputes to international arbitration before they will invest big dollars in Cuba.
The U.S. Cuba Legal Summit looks to provide a platform for U.S. in-house counsel to investigate the legal system in Cuba with a sharp eye to potential pluses and minuses when opening lines of communications.
Legal counsel, corporate executives and compliance officers from Fortune 500 and Latin 500 companies -- as well as other key stakeholders in the region -- who will engage in lively peer-to-peer discussions on the most challenging legal issues affecting U.S. and Cuba.
