International: Cuba


Carlton Fields’ strong Florida presence, particularly in Miami, the gateway to Latin America, gives a competitive advantage to our clients from, doing business in, or hoping to expand into that region. We are ideally placed to help them respond to and navigate the changing relationship between the United States and Cuba.

Our Cuba Desk is comprised of attorneys and professionals with strong credentials and experience in a variety of practice areas. The firm’s Spanish-speaking professionals possess a deep understanding of the legal,  political, commercial, and cultural distinctions between the United States and Cuba as well as the dynamics of each client’s business.

Near-term, we are focused on monitoring developments and opportunities in the following areas:

  • Telecommunications
  • Construction
  • Tourism
  • Agriculture

As we anticipate continued normalization of U.S.-Cuba relations, and the consequences of Cuba’s removal from the U.S. Department of State’s State Sponsors of Terrorism list at the end of May 2015, we have identified the following additional areas that may present significant business opportunities for clients, who will benefit from our extensive experience, deep knowledge, and meaningful connections:

  • Real estate
  • Insurance
  • Trademarks
  • Banking

The changing relationship between the United States and Cuba presents opportunities and introduces new challenges.  Clients in the United States, Latin America, and elsewhere can depend on Carlton Fields for thoughtful advice, analysis, and strategies for best navigating the latest developments.
