The Cuba Standard newsletter recently posted a story about an increase in lobbying efforts on Capitol Hill related to US-Cuba matters. The article details how the changing relationship between the United States and Cuba has prompted companies to add US-Cuba policy to their advocacy portfolios.
Mauricio Tamargo, attorney with Poblete Tamargo LLP, was interviewed by the Cuba Standard for the story on the question of claims pending against the government of Cuba:
“There is a game afoot,” Tamargo said. “For the first time in 55 years, the two countries are actually discussing claims.”
As a former Chairman of the Justice Departments’ Foreign Claims Settlement Commission, Tamargo explains that under the US law, claims should be resolved before US sanctions are eased.
