Benelux countries set to start screening foreign investments

What does it mean for your next M&A project?

Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg will start screening foreign investments for potential risks to their national security, public order or strategic interests in 2023. All three regimes will come with pre-closing (suspensory) notification requirements in case certain thresholds are met, so it is key to already start considering their potential implications in the transaction documents for your current and future deals.

In this newsletter we discuss our main takeaways for each regime and provide a series of top tips.
