Foreign direct investment in focus - webinar series online

Stephenson Harwood LLP

WHEN: Tuesdays, 23 November to 7 December 2021


Foreign direct investment in focus - webinar series

Tuesdays, 23 November to 7 December 2021

10:00am EU  |  1:00pm UAE  |  9:00am UK  |  5:00pm Singapore

Recently with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen across the globe an increase in the number of foreign direct investment (FDI) control regimes adopted as well as a strengthening of existing FDI regimes, given fears of disruption to supply chains and concerns over likely takeovers by large multinational corporations and state-owned enterprises of weakened companies. This has all led to additional administrative scrutiny of M&A deals.

Stephenson Harwood's FDI experts are joined by a number of partner firms (including Maddocks (Australia), Dorda (Austria), Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek (Germany), Guido Hidayanto & Partners (Indonesia), AKD (Netherlands), Hesketh Henry (New Zealand), ACCRALAW (Philippines), Perez Llorca (Spain), Setterwells (Sweden), and VNA Legal (Vietnam)) to host a series of webinars in November and December 2021 that explore the latest FDI trends and developments from a European, UK and an Asia Pacific perspective.

In Q1 2022, we intend to hold two further webinars looking at FDI developments in the Middle East (covering UAE, Saudi Arabia and other key jurisdictions in the region) and a high-profile deal specific FDI case study involving the US, Australia and New Zealand.

A European perspective - Part I

Tuesday 23 November 2021 

In Europe, there has been significant growth in FDI regimes and reviews of transactions motivated by a number of geopolitical factors (e.g. protectionism, trade wars) with COVID-19 acting as an additional catalyst. In this webinar, we provide an overview of the EU's Framework Regulation (and its recently published guidelines) together with an overview of other tools available to the European Commission to protect European and national strategic assets (e.g. foreign public subsidies, Article 22 referral mechanism under the EU Merger Regulation). We also look at what businesses can expect as a result of having to navigate both the EU's Framework and national review systems from a practical and logistical standpoint with views from Austria, France, Netherlands and Sweden.

A European perspective - Part II

Tuesday 30 November 2021 

Following on from Part I, we take a closer look at important themes and trends arising from the scope and applicability of the FDI regimes in a number of key jurisdictions in Europe, including France, Germany and Spain as well as the UK's new National Security & Investment Act. We will explore the broad jurisdictional reach of FDI screening regimes, the national security risk criteria, the review processes and enforcement trends in certain of these jurisdictions, providing practical advice and recommendations for M&A deals and how best to successfully navigate through FDI regimes.

An Asia Pacific perspective 

Tuesday 7 December 2021 

Asia continues to record significant growth in foreign investment in 2021, accounting for more than half of global inward and outward flows. There have however been a number of changes to FDI regulations across various Asia Pacific jurisdictions in the recent years which investors should be aware of when considering FDI in the region. Join us for a session discussing FDI developments ranging from fiscal incentives to notifiable national security actions and market trends in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand. Our panel of guest speakers will cover practical points for clients on how to navigate FDI regimes across Asia Pacific focusing on crucial considerations for investors before embarking on FDI in the region.

The Intersection of Intellectual Property and International Arbitration: Quantum and Valuation (Part 1) online

Charles River Associates

Intellectual property is a key driver of value in today’s global economy, and the risks of misappropriation are higher than ever given the ease of transferring digital information and blurred lines between collaborators and competitors.

International arbitration is used more frequently to resolve complex, cross-border IP disputes, because it provides a means to consolidate multi-jurisdictional disputes into a single forum and provides the flexibility to appoint adjudicators with specialised IP, technical, or industry knowledge.

In this program, the first in a series addressing substantive IP in IA issues, our internationally recognized panelists address how and when Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) become a focal point in investor-state and commercial proceedings; provide an overview of IP value drivers, IPR valuation and damages methods, and significant differences in valuation standards and damages measures by jurisdiction; and, briefly identify current developments and hot topics, such as geopolitics or FRAND/SEP, which may impact IP in IA quantum claims. 

Each of these hot topics will be addressed in more detail in future programs.

Anti-Corruption Enforcement – Trends and Compliance Best Practices online

Jenner & Block LLP

In the US and Europe, anti-corruption enforcement has continued throughout 2020 and 2021, in spite of historic events including Brexit, the election of President Biden, the COVID-19 pandemic, and seismic social and geopolitical shifts. At the same time, National Security and Cyber Crime have become increasingly significant risks for global companies, which now face an even greater range of threats to their operations. Given these changes, our panel will unpick how these trends might affect companies’ approach to anti-corruption compliance and investigations, and how in-house counsel and compliance officers can help protect their organizations from the most serious bribery risks that bring the potential for significant harm to their reputations, finances, and credibility.

In particular, our cross-border panel will:

  • Discuss recent anti-corruption enforcement trends and important cases;
  • Analyse the Biden Administration’s approach to anti-corruption enforcement, especially in light of leadership changes at DOJ and the SEC;
  • Consider how the recent increased focus on cyber-crime and national security enforcement impacts anti-corruption; and
  • Identify best practices for compliance officers and in-house counsel.

Our panellists include lead partners of Jenner & Block’s market-leading Investigations, Compliance and Defense Practice, which includes senior alumni of the US Department of Justice, the UK Serious Fraud Office, and the US Securities and Exchange Commission. Our Anti-Corruption team includes numerous lawyers with deep experience involving the FCPA, UKBA and other international anti-corruption laws. We provide our global clients with pragmatic, risk-orientated compliance counselling, conduct efficient, focused internal investigations, and robustly defended individuals and corporations facing government scrutiny.

Tech Law Trends for 2022: Kemp IT Law Webinar online

Kemp IT Law

WHEN: 09.00-10.00 (UK time), Thursday, 2nd December 2021


Metaverse. Digital Assets. NFTs. Data fabric. TIAs. Cybersecurity mesh. Generative AI. Exponentiality. As we leave 2021 – with more than its fair share of TLAs and buzzwords – the cloud driven “tech intensity” that has fuelled all technology industries since the start of the pandemic is itself intensifying.

As ever, tech law struggles to keep up. Although it’s always got there in the end, the gap between technology’s leading edge and where the law is has never been greater.

Lawyers from top UK tech practice Kemp IT Law have for many years looked forward to see what current trends have in store for tech law in the year ahead.  What’s unique this year is the combination of “tech intensity” and growing societal calls for change.

In this webinar, we’ll be exploring:

  • What these macro trends mean for tech law developments in 2022;
  • Their impact on contracting, regulation and intellectual property; and
  • The changes we might expect next year in the areas of AI, blockchain, data, platforms, digital assets and the metaverse.
