Foreign Investment Regulation

Assessing the risks and opportunities

Foreign investment regulation has become increasingly relevant for the execution of M&A deals and even broader transactions. More and more countries are adopting foreign investment regimes to protect their national assets and critical industries. This makes it important to carefully assess implications and risks early on.

Governments have recently taken significant steps in tightening restrictions and are increasingly willing to scrutinize transactions. The thresholds for intervention have been lowered and the range of industry sectors affected is growing. This can have a considerable effect on deal planning and execution.

The unprecedented pace of change in legislation and policy therefore requires strategic planning and specialist advice to navigate the complex regulatory environment successfully.
