Our interdisciplinary team assists domestic and global companies on all aspects of the U.S. national security review process before the CFIUS.
CFIUS, an inter-agency committee of the U.S. government, reviews and investigates the impact of foreign investments in U.S. companies, projects, or assets. The committee has broad authority to impose measures on the transacting party, as a condition to granting approval, in order to mitigate any potential national security risk. Transactions not properly structured to address U.S. national security considerations may be blocked or unwound.
In addition to our strong technical understanding of the current law and procedure, we have proven practical experience in navigating the complex CFIUS process. We successfully obtained clearance in numerous matters across a wide range of industries and jurisdictions, including transactions involving government-owned or -controlled acquirers.
Our interdisciplinary team understands key issues in CFIUS filings involving controlled products or technology, including export controls, sanctions, and national industrial security procedures. We also engage with other U.S. government agencies on national security matters on behalf of our clients, including the Departments of Treasury, State, Defense, Commerce, Homeland Security, and Energy.
