Peter Quinter Featured in Bloomberg Law

MIAMI, FL – January 23, 2019 - GrayRobinson’s customs attorney Peter Quinter, chair of the firm’s U.S. Customs and International Trade Law practice group, located in the Miami law firm and Fort Lauderdale law firm offices, was featured in the Bloomberg Law article “Administration Mulling Together Cuba Embargo by Allowing Lawsuits.” Title III of the Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity Act of 1996 allows Americans to sue companies with businesses in the U.S. that have invested in properties seized by the Cuban government. Since its inception, Title III has been suspended twice a year for six months at a time. However, the Trump administration announced a 45-day suspension of the law. It is estimated that this could bring in anywhere from 75,000 to 200,000 claims to the courts. Quinter shared that “opening up this topic again will do nothing to compensate U.S. persons for confiscated property since there is no enforcement mechanism.” Read the full article here (subscription required).
