New Restrictions on US Foreign Investment in Critical Technologies

November 19, 2018

On August 13, 2018, the president signed the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act (FIRRMA) into law, which is expected to significantly impact national security reviews of foreign investment into the United States, particularly for certain US businesses involved in “critical technologies.” The law will affect a broad range of Bay Area companies, particularly high-tech companies, companies working on technology with defense and security applications, VC firms (especially those with foreign LPs), private equity funds (also with foreign partners), and real estate firms.

Please join us as our panelists share their insights about how FIRRMA is changing the landscape for foreign investment in the Bay Area.
