The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”) is an interagency body which has the authority to assess the national security implications of transactions that could result in control of U.S. businesses by foreign persons. With the increased focus on the acquisitions of U.S. companies, especially by China, CFIUS has entered the public consciousness in a way it never has before.
In their presentation, Ms. Olga Torres and Mr. Albert Schultz, will discuss what CFIUS is, its background and recent history, its composition, and the processes associated with CFIUS. Also, the presentation will address CFIUS’s missions and goals.

Most importantly, the presentation will cover recent CFIUS cases. The Trump administration has blocked more acquisitions of U.S. companies than any other presidency. This presentation will provide a brief overview of those cases, as well as the implications of these decisions.  The presentation will conclude with practical hints for companies and investors that may have to face the CFIUS process.
