In December 2014, President Obama announced the commencement of normalizing relations with Cuba. No simple or quick task, the President’s decision to change course after more than 50 years will require a significant overhaul of current US law that could impact every citizen and US business interested in having a relationship of any kind, recreational or corporate, with Cuba.
With a rapidly changing political, business and legal landscape, how can today’s senior level decision makers best understand and navigate the current and projected Cuban framework by which a significant portion of their future corporate strategy could depend on?
In direct response to demand from our clients for access to quality education on doing business in Cuba, Momentum is proud to provide the following resources for senior level decision makers across multiple industries as well as their advisors and service providers.
1. 2nd U.S. – Cuba Corporate Counsel Summit: October 7th, Penn Club of New York
Presented by Knowledge@Wharton, The Lauder Institute and Momentum, the 2nd U.S. – Cuba Corporate Counsel Summit will again bring together GC’s from major US corporations charged with the task of navigating through the regulatory landscape. They will be joined by outside counsel from the US and Cuba who have the expertise they need. Ensure that you are fully prepared to advise your organization or your clients on the legal and regulatory challenges facing them as they move towards Cuba.
