Navigating Emerging Complex National Security Reviews across the UK and EU

Incoming and updated Foreign Direct Investment regimes are being introduced across Europe, creating a more highly scrutinized national security focus. Newly introduced policies and procedures are creating uncertainty, and the lack of jurisprudence has left experts with little precedent to advise clients on how to complete business transactions.

Join C5’s 4th European Forum on FDI Reviews and CFIUS taking place in London on June 7-8, 2023 to delve into the critical changes affecting professionals working in foreign direct investment screening regulations.
