Foreign Direct Investment Approvals in Europe and the U.S.

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) review procedures have recently been subject to essential amendments and a more rigid approach of the competent authorities in Europe and the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). Cross border M&A deals require additional coordination with authorities, more complex and diligent planning of steps towards completion and the negotiation of appropriate provisions in underlying agreements. Please join Mayer Brown teams from Europe and the United States for two webinars in November covering FDI approvals:
