Michael Krinsky has been practicing law for forty-five years. For three decades, he has led Rabinowitz, Boudin, Standard, Krinsky, & Lieberman, P.C.’s representation of Cuba and other foreign governments, and their agencies and enterprises, as well as the Firm’s practice in the area of U.S. embargoes and export controls. Mr. Krinsky advises Cuban Ministries – including Cuba’s Foreign Ministry, Ministry of Foreign Commerce and Investment, Ministry of Basic Industries, Ministry of Telecommunications, and Ministry of Culture – on U.S.-related legal matters. Mr. Krinsky also assists numerous U.S. and third-country companies and other clients deal with U.S. restrictions on transactions with Cuba, as well as other sanctioned countries, and also U.S. export controls. He is generally considered one of the leading experts on U.S. embargo laws and regulations. His clients include U.S. and third-country tour operators and travel agencies, commercial companies, not-for-profits, foundations, software developers, airplane charter companies, remittance forwarders, entertainment and news organizations, colleges and universities, cultural institutions, and artists and art galleries, among others. Mr. Krinsky litigated the case that established an exemption for art from the U.S.’s embargo programs (Ashton v.
