Since the 1980s, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) has had the power to review and block certain transactions by foreign parties in the United States that have raised “national security concerns. Since the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act (FIRRMA) became law in August 2018, and new regulations implementing FIRRMA became effective in February 2020, the scope CFIUSs jurisdiction has broadened dramatically, and CFIUS has increasingly used this jurisdiction to block proposed investments and even require divestment of consummated transactions. This presentation will provide an overview of the new regulations applicable to foreign investment review; summarize recent enforcement actions and trends; and provide practical guidance for navigating this complex regulatory environment.
