The world of foreign investment control

In recent years there has been a paradigm shift in the importance and frequency of foreign investment reviews as part of the deal process. An increasing number of jurisdictions have introduced rules restricting foreign investment or have strengthened existing rules.

More than ever, it is imperative for dealmakers to consider foreign investment issues upfront in order to mitigate any potential risks and/or delays. Where the proposed investment involves a merger or acquisition, there may be overlaps with merger control filings which need to be carefully managed.

Our competition team has decades of experience in managing complex and large scale multi-jurisdictional merger control filings. We also have considerable experience in handling foreign investment filings. We continue to develop our expertise and know-how in this rapidly evolving area, in order to remain ahead of the curve.
