In this session, we will discuss the key legal and practical issues relevant to foreign investment in M&A transactions in the UK, Germany and across the European Union, highlighting the new risks for your business that you need to be aware of in an M&A transaction. We’ll look at changes in the law in the UK, Germany and the EU and how screening can be mandatory or voluntary. 

Across Europe, changes towards an increased focus on national security could make many more M&A transactions subject to screening for foreign direct investment, even if they involve domestic buyers or investors. The UK’s new National Security and Investment Act is one such change in Europe that shines the spotlight on seventeen industry sectors that are considered of national security significance.
