WebinarGlobal Accreditation 1.0 CLE | March 25, 2021
The EU has one of the world's most open investment regimes and is the most attractive destination for foreign direct investment in the world representing a major source of growth and jobs. However, in pre-determined cases, foreign investments may represent a risk for national security or public order in Member States or in the Union as a whole and are therefore either cleared with remedies or prohibited.
Similar to the latest tightening of foreign investment reviews in the US, the most recent changes to European foreign direct investment control regimes have also been driven by the pandemic. Moreover, changes still aim at screening investments by foreign investors involving critical infrastructure, critical technologies and/or the supply of critical inputs.
In this webinar, our lawyers will comment on the applicable laws across several countries in Europe and the strategic challenges investors might face as a result and through a case study, as they will address examples of FDI screening processes.
In times like these, where you may face cross-border challenges, you want a global firm with familiarity with markets across the world to help guide you through the evolving status of foreign direct investment.Please join us as we look at the FDI landscape in Europe and how it might affect US investments.
