Our team serves as a trusted advisor when you’re looking to expand your reach, solve problems and manage risks in the global marketplace. The sensitivities surrounding international transactions become even more pronounced when issues related to compliance with US asset controls, export control requirements or foreign investment reviews are implicated. Our team of legal and policy experts assist clients in navigating the pre- and post-transaction notifications under the Exon-Florio statute, establish appropriate review methodologies to assess the providence of engaging the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), and ensure that any transaction that could implicate a CFIUS review is appropriately diligenced. Our team has advised on acquisitions in a variety of contexts, from international mergers to asset purchases and spin-offs. We have developed specific expertise in addressing the unique circumstances of acquisitions involving sensitive or export-controlled technologies, and emphasize integration with the deal team as a hallmark of our work.
We are proud to offer clients a team specializing in international trade that is also integrated with our Public Policy and Regulation practice, a characteristic central to our approach in national security reviews. An additional advantage we offer clients is our global footprint that includes strong teams in Brussels, Beijing, Shanghai and other regions where local presence can often facilitate improved response time and more efficient representations of foreign acquirers. We also offer a wide range of language capabilities in our Washington, DC office, which provides similar benefits. Industry sectors in which we have direct CFIUS and foreign diligence/transaction expertise are the following:
Our experience involves formulating mediation plans, addressing divestiture strategies and options for mitigating control concerns, identifying and advancing security plans and managing required disclosures under such mitigation orders, as well as successful clearance of transactions.
