Foreign Direct Investment

Without a proper strategy at the start of a transaction, FDI issues can easily become deal breakers or expose transactions to legal challenges and increased costs. Adequate planning on the other hand can help avoid unexpected impacts on the target business’s operations and restrictions on the investors’ rights with respect to the target.

Advance preparation and implementation of a clear foreign investment review strategy are invaluable to obtaining timely approval of transactions consistent with deal objectives.
