Please join BakerHostetler for an update regarding regulatory changes to U.S. sanctions laws and regulations as well as an informative discussion on the interplay between the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), the government panel that reviews potential foreign investments for national security risks, and M&A transactions.

This seminar will offer an overview of recent and anticipated developments to pertinent U.S. economic sanctions programs under the Trump Administration. These developments affect the scope of U.S. companies’ involvement in cross-border and multi-national transactions. In addition, with foreign investment in the U.S. growing, and in light of the current political climate, CFIUS is playing an increasingly central role in M&A transactions. A CFIUS review or investigation — or the potential for such a review — can stall or kill a deal. This seminar will address how and why CFIUS may affect your company, how to best prepare for a filing, and other timely issues.

Former CIA agent Albert Schultz will share his observations relating to CFIUS and Defense Security Service (DSS) efforts to mitigate the national security effects of U.S. companies with foreign ownership, control, or influence. Mr. Schultz publishes a limited circulation newsletter about CFIUS and DSS developments for attorneys and other practitioners in the field.
