FDI & Protective Security

Regulatory reviews of assets critical to society are rapidly increasing in scope, complexity and importance. As governmental authorities are still adapting and the trend is to tighten or set up new FDI screening mechanisms, experienced legal advisors are key. We guide our clients through the entire national process relating to the Finnish foreign direct investment (FDI) regime and the Swedish Protective Security Act. This includes the EU screening process with the European Commission as well as the rules specific to real estate transactions.

To ensure that our clients continue to receive the best possible advice, we draw on our significant transactional, real-estate, merger control, regulatory policy, defense sector and trade law expertise.

But our guidance does not stop there.  Thanks to our worldwide FDI network of partner firms, we also support clients in multijurisdictional FDI assessments and ensure that the national reviews and notifications are handled by Tier 1 experts in Europe, the United States and Asia.

Our team has significant practical and strategical insight and perspective on the broader EU policy landscape and maintains excellent relationships with government officials in Finland, Sweden and at the EU Commission. This enables ut to keep our clients one step ahead in terms of legislative and policy developments in this fast-moving environment.
