Event Details

Foreign investors have long merged with or acquired American companies and assets. As economic and technological competition become fiercer, an interagency body called the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) has been increasing its review of foreign M&A transactions that could hurt or threaten U.S. national security.

Gregory Husisian and Jenlain Scott, a partner and associate at Foley & Lardner LLP in Washington, D.C., will give an overview of the work of CFIUS, describe its national security review process for foreign M&A activities, talk about recent enforcement trends, and discuss how CFIUS has become a dominant factor in determining how deals are completed and which countries are allowed to purchase key U.S. companies and technologies.
