The proposed regulations are similar to drone regulations that have been enacted in the U.S., but more stringent. The FAA enacted and enforced drone registration until the U.S. Court of Appeals  declared it unlawful earlier this year. “Fundamentally, this looks like regulations in the U.K. are developing more or less in parallel with the U.S., except that an act of Congress prohibits regulation of hobby drones,” says Brant Hadaway, partner with the Diaz, Reus law firm where he established an Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) practice.

In Latin America arbitration wins

Administrative Managing Partner Marta Colomar-Garcia explains that in Latin America the possibility to use international mediation is key to do business.

Trump’s Changes to U.S.-Cuba Deal Headed Our Way Soon

On June 16, President Donald Trump announced a cancelation to the post-Dec. 14, 2014 U.S. policy toward Cuba. While speaking before prominent members of the Cuban-American community in Miami, President Trump stated that he is “canceling the last administration’s completely one-sided deal with Cuba,” effective immediately. However, the announced changes do not take effect until the new regulations are officially issued by the different U.S. government departments. The Department of Treasury, along with its Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), as well as the Department of Commerce, will be among the departments that will each have 30 days to review the changes the president has provided. After the 30-day review, the departments will begin drafting the new regulations. It may be months before the new regulations are officially issued, at which moment everything becomes official and binding.
