With FIRRMA Implementation Fast Approaching, Gain the Necessary Tools to Ensure Deal Success Under Growing CFIUS Scrutiny

On September 17, 2019, the U.S. Department of the Treasury issued over 300 pages of proposed regulations to implement the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act of 2018 (“FIRRMA”). This legislation is the first in over a decade to expand the scope of inbound foreign investment subject to review by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”), and the final regulations will become effective no later than February 13, 2020.

In this critical time of transition for dealmakers and foreign investment, we invite you to join your peers at American Conference Institute’s 6th National Conference on CFIUS. This is the only event on the market that offers a unique opportunity to engage with the “who’s who” of the CFIUS and Team Telecom bar – including government, industry and private practice leaders involved in some of the most high-profile transactions to date.


Join us at the next event and gain critical insights on:

  • How the CFIUS review process post-FIRRMA will impact the future of FDI
  • How the FIRRMA enforcement mechanism will be implemented and how it is likely to play out
  • Overcoming the pressure points of the new mandatory filing program
  • How the new rules will affect the structuring of mitigation agreements and post-acquisition implementation
  • Implications of CFIUS’s expanded jurisdiction over covered investments in Technology, Infrastructure and Data (“TID” businesses)
  • How CFIUS will work within the new export control regime and Commerce’s awaited definitions of “emerging and foundational technologies”
  • How the new FIRRMA rules will impact private equity, venture capital and alternative investments
  • What real estate transactions are now deemed covered by CFIUS’s expanded jurisdiction and navigating the implications of this
  • The implications of CFIUS’s anticipated “white list” of “excepted countries/ excepted companies” – and what this will mean for multijurisdictional reviews going forward
  • CHINA: How China’s most recent investment and trade environments are impacting deal flows
  • The latest on new EU rules on Foreign Direct Investment and how deals will be impacted by other FDI regimes
