Mayer Brown's Cuba practice offers an end-to-end array of services to clients seeking to establish a presence in Cuba.


Inspired by President Obama’s historic announcement on “charting a new course on Cuba,” Mayer Brown created a Cuba practice that offers an end-to-end array of services to clients seeking to establish a presence in Cuba. Within the purview of US regulations, the practice performs initial due diligence on Cuba opportunities, identifies potential partners and Cuban counterparts, arranges meetings with Cuban decision makers and advises on the transactional activities pertinent to the resulting deals—while closely monitoring all such activities for sanctions compliance.

Our Cuba sanctions compliance team has more than 30 years’ experience advising on the legal issues arising from international trade in goods, services, technology and capital. We have counseled clients on Cuba sanctions issues across many industries, including finance, telecommunications, insurance, consulting, engineering, mining, tourism, chemicals, agriculture, medicine, consumer goods, industrial goods, transportation and infrastructure.

Members of our Cuba team have advised clients on interactions with the United States and other governments worldwide, financial transactions in Latin America, the Caribbean and other emerging markets and international arbitrations in the region, including in relation to foreign investments in Cuba.
