Program Descriptions 
CFIUS Regulations for Foreign Investment in the U.S.: Anticipated Trends and Lessons Learned from Recent Cases

CFIUS is an inter-agency committee of the U.S. government authorized to review, investigate and block any transaction or investment that could result in the control of any U.S. business or asset by a foreign person that may raise national security concerns or involve critical infrastructure. At its core, CFIUS is made up of representatives from nine federal agencies and is chaired by the Department of Treasury.

CFIUS reviews have sharply risen in recent years as foreign investment in the U.S. has increased. Moreover, the recent blocking of China-backed Canyon Bridge Capital Partners to acquire Lattice Semiconductor confirms speculation that CFIUS reviews are likely to face increased scrutiny under the Trump Administration, with an anticipated increase in mitigation requirements, withdrawals and blocks.

Join us for this webinar to learn about the CFIUS review process, including key players, steps, recent trends and outlook for the future. The webinar will also provide insight on preparing for CFIUS reviews, including risk assessment, filing preparation and strategies for working with CFIUS.

Our speaker will be Kerry Scarlott, partner with BakerHostetler.
