Roschier launches FDI & Protective Security crossborder practice area

Foreign investment is thoroughly monitored, both on a national and EU level. Our crossborder and crosspractice team of experts has been assisting both acquirers and monitored entities in these increasingly complex procedures by combining our experience in transactions, real-estate, merger control, regulatory policy, the defense sector and trade law for several years. Now, we have united their expertise under the umbrella of FDI & Protective Security.

FDI and protective security screening is increasing in scope, complexity and importance. As governmental authorities are still adapting and the trend is to tighten or set up new screening mechanisms, timely, strategic and high quality advice can make a significant difference in the successful completion of the transaction concerned.

We advise clients on the full lifecycle of national and multijurisdictional screening processes, including before the European Commission as well as the rules specific to real estate transactions. Thanks to our established and close worldwide networks, we are able to provide seamless multijurisdictional service by Tier 1 experts in Europe, the United States and Asia.
