Andres Rivero Spoke on ABA 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting: Empowerment Webinar

03 Aug 2020

Andres Rivero spoke on the American Bar Association International Law Section webinar entitled, “Paradise Recouped? Impact of Helms-Burton Title III Activation on Expropriated Cuban Property,” on June 30, 2020. The webinar featured a panel that discussed the historic decision the United States made to activate Title III of the Helms-Burton Act on April 17, 2019.

The Helms-Burton Act provides Cuban-Americans whose properties in Cuba were confiscated by the Castro dictatorship with the right to recover damages from persons and entities that traffic in, or benefit from trafficking in, their properties. The Act also provides for treble damages against a defendant that received prior notice of the claim and did not stop its trafficking or compensate the owners of the confiscated property.

Rivero’s practice focuses exclusively on complex commercial litigation, including international arbitration and litigation. A former federal prosecutor, Rivero is a skilled trial lawyer with more than 33 years of experience in representing corporations and entrepreneurs in cross-border disputes, antitrust and securities claims, and partnership and shareholder controversies.
