PLI's "CFIUS's Web: From Pig Farms to the Waldorf - How Real Estate and Other Transactions Outside the Defense Sector May Trigger CFIUS Review"
Stroock Special Counsel Christopher Brewster and Anne Salladin will host a one hour briefing on "CFIUS's Web: From Pig Farms to the Waldorf - How Real Estate and Other Transactions Outside the Defense Sector May Trigger CFIUS Review."
The webcast, sponsored by the Practising Law Institute, will take place on February 5, 2015.
This program will review the following questions, among others:
- What is "national security"?
- How can a real estate transaction present national security concerns? Proximity, sure -- but what else?
- What other non-traditional cases have attracted CFIUS attention?
- What's next? Where is CFIUS looking? If (as senior agency officials have recently stated) global warming threatens U.S. national security -- and so does foreign corruption -- are deals headed for a thorough regulatory scrub and audit?
- What is Congress saying about expanding the Committee's authority?
- What is the likely impact of the Ralls litigation on "one off" deals?
- How must parties prepare for CFIUS?
