M&A in the Trump Era: What Next?

04 May 2017 05:30 p.m. - 08:00 p.m.

Morrison & Foerster
One Ropemaker Street
London, EC2Y 9AW

We are hosting an insightful session focusing on how the new Trump administration could impact global M&A deal flow and your transactions.

Our discussion will address the following issues:

  • How the continuing Trump “transition” impacts U.S. Government reviews of inbound M&A
  • The expanding U.S. national security state and M&A
  • How the U.S. Government asserts jurisdiction over global deals
  • What is CFIUS (Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S.) and why it matters
  • What you need to know to get your deals done

Our panelists include experts who are experiencing first hand the changes in Washington and the impact on M&A in the context of the advisory work they are doing for global companies:

  • Nick Spiliotes (MoFo Washington DC), Co-head of National Security Practice, who has decades of advising clients on national security foreign investment approvals (CFIUS), Defense Department Industrial Security matters and U.S. sanctions and embargoes (OFAC)
  • Graeme Sloan (MoFo London) and Eric McCrath (MoFo San Francisco/Silicon Valley), who are co-chairs of our global M&A practice, and advise multi-national clients on their strategic and transformational cross-border investments and acquisitions
