We are pleased to share the first episode of our Essential Foreign Investment podcast, which will form part of our quarterly review of global developments in foreign investment screening.

Partner Alastair Mordaunt is joined by CFIUS advisor Colin Costello and EU FDI practitioners Ermelinda Spinelli and Rocío de Troya to discuss the impact of rapidly evolving laws on investors’ international deal planning. They consider how national security screening will evolve under President Biden; how the EU’s new FDI regime is being applied on the ground; and how businesses should respond to this fast-changing environment?

To read more about these issues and developments globally, sign up to receive our quarterly foreign investment monitor here.
