Foreign Investment Control

An increasing regulatory risk

In this short video update, we look at the ever-wider reach of foreign investment control and the increasing regulatory risk this poses for clients. We consider the latest trends and developments, focusing in particular on the United States, the UK and Germany, and discuss what the stricter rules are likely to mean for clients in terms of timing, predictability and strategy for M&A deals.

Our partners, Nicole Kar and Christoph Barth, are joined by Linklaters’ new Senior Counsel, Jonathan Gafni, who served as deputy national intelligence officer for CFIUS support at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and has experience of advising on the national security threat analyses of over 500 cross-border transactions.
