FDI screening in Europe : practical perspectives

Foreign investment screening plays an increasingly important role in M&A transactions. It has taken a place alongside merger control as a key regulatory element in any deal. Navigating a multitude of regimes adds increasing time and cost to transactions.

In this EU Competition Law Briefing we will explore CMS’s recent insights in this fast moving space. Our experts from Belgium, France, Germany and the UK will share practical experiences and some of their tips and tricks.

We will address the main issues and challenges – together with some national peculiarities – of FDI proceedings, including identifying jurisdiction, which sectors are captured, the procedure, gathering the right information, the potential risks and how to mitigate these.

Date:  Friday 7 June, 12:30 CET/ 11:30 UK - 14:30 CET/13:30 UK

Speakers: Kai Neuhaus, Claire Vannini, Russel Hoare , Annabelle Lepièce

Competition Law Outlook 2024

Significant developments are currently being made to EU and national competition laws. At EU level, there are still decisions to be made on a number of new regulations in 2024. At the same time, crucial rulings from EU courts are anticipated later this year. And last but not least, national legislators will need to consider making amendments to their national competition laws.

In the EU Competition Law Briefing: Outlook 2024 webinar we provided you with comprehensive and up-to-date information on the developments in EU competition law. In this webinar, you will gain insight into the key aspects of the following topics:

  • New rules in digital: DMA, DSA and AI
  • Abuse of dominance: Guidelines on exclusionary abuses
  • Reg. 1 / 2003: Evaluation of the framework for antitrust enforcement
  • Technology-Transfer: Review of the TTBER and Guidelines
  • ECJ decisions: Important judgments from Luxembourg
  • National competition laws: Overview on new tools and amendments

We discussed what the implications these developments could have on your business and provided insight with regard to what need to know about them in 2024 and beyond.
