This week, Richard Matheny — who has been involved in some of the most recent and high-profile CFIUS cases, including StayNTouch and PatientsLikeMe — takes us step-by-step through the CFIUS process, from the Committee’s first inbound email to the initial phone call and beyond.
This week, we sit down (virtually) with a former Foreign Ownership, Control or Influence Action Officer in the DoD’s Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency. Inside are pitfalls to avoid when filing with CFIUS, and tips for filers. “Wishful thinking is not a strategy,” she says.
This week, we sit down (virtually) with former Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Treasury and U.S. Ambassador to Germany Robert Kimmitt, who takes us inside the National Security Council, and explains why it’s important to Janet Yellen, CFIUS, and (ultimately) you.
This week, we sit down (virtually, of course) with Laura Fraedrich, who has deep expertise in FDI requirements. According to Laura, parties should remember that CFIUS might have jurisdiction “even when it does not seem that there are foreign parties involved.” Details are inside.
This week, we sit down (virtually, of course) with Anne Salladin, previously an advisor to CFIUS, to discuss ways companies can assess CFIUS implications up front when putting together deals. Details, common lessons, and the “biggest mistake” when dealing with CFIUS are inside.
This week, we sit down (virtually, of course) with Farhad Jalinous, Partner and Chair of the Foreign Direct Investment Reviews and US National Security/CFIUS Practice at White & Case to discuss the impact of the election, COVID, global trends, and more.
This week, we speak (virtually, of course) with Michael Rose, National Practice Leader for CFIUS Advisory Services at EisnerAmper. On tap: Pre-filing risk assessments; pitfalls for companies to avoid; controls and procedures to ensure compliance with mitigation agreements; third-party compliance audits; and more.
This week, we sit down (virtually, of course), with Lowenstein Sandler partner Doreen Edelman. On the agenda: CFIUS, the DoD’s Trusted Capital Program, oft-overlooked FDI reporting mandates from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, and more.
This week, we sit down (virtually) with Linklaters senior counsel Jonathan Gafni, who previously supported CFIUS at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Gafni describes common misconceptions, emerging pitfalls, and other insights on CFIUS.
