Mark your calendars for MoFo’s third annual MoForward program, which will be held once again at the Ritz Carlton Tysons Corner, on November 5. For more details and to register, click here.
Leading up to our event, we will post sneak peeks of our agenda. This week, we will cover the National Security + CFIUS session, New and Modernized Foreign Investment and Export Control Regime.
MoFo Sr. National Security Advisor Joe Benkert and Of Counsel Charles Capito will discuss the robust new regulations implementing the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act (FIRRMA) and export control reform. The new regulations are out and include new definitions and provisions that affect a wide range of transaction involving foreign capital. Joe and Charles will also provide observations, updates, and pointers from their dealings with CFIUS over the past year.
The landscape in this area is in a period of critical and near constant change. Joe and Charles will provide up-to-the-minute developments on foreign investment and national security reviews.
