Foreign Direct Investment Review Regimes in Europe – European and National Legislators Tighten Scrutiny, in light of COVID-19 and beyond

Please join us for a webinar in which we will provide an overview of the EU’s Framework Regulation (and its recently published guidelines) and of the FDI regimes in some of Europe’s key jurisdictions. Topics that will be covered include:

  • The changing regulatory landscape for FDI.
  • The scope, applicability and review criteria of FDI control regimes in France, Germany and the UK.
  • Recommendations for M&A transactions: how to navigate the FDI review process, and implications for transaction documentation.
