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.
