Partner Giovanna M. Cinelli will join Strafford as a panelist for its webinar “Foreign Investment Due Diligence: Navigating Mandatory Reviews, Expanding Scope and Regulation, Mitigating Risk.”

Cross-border investments have become a US and global issue. The US continues to enhance its national security reviews of foreign direct investments (FDI), and other countries are developing new regimes or mirroring the US regime. FDI reviews tied to national security affect most industries as national security includes defense, intelligence, military matters, critical infrastructure, telecommunications, health, supply chain, cyber, biotech, and emerging technologies.

This CLE webinar will guide foreign investors' counsel on the current trends in global regimes overseeing foreign investments. The panel will discuss the mandatory reviews and how they may be evolving. The panel will also discuss the interplay with antitrust laws and offer best practices for navigating the review process.

Topics will include:

  • Current trends in global regimes overseeing cross-border investments, including the US, China, UK, and the EU.
  • Mandatory reviews of cross-border investments
  • Best practices counsel should employ when navigating mandatory reviews
  • Considerations for investors to mitigate risk with FDI
