Carlin, chair of Morrison & Foerster’s Global Risk & Crisis Management Group, in the CNBC article “Trump killing Qualcomm’s huge deal could prompt a trade war in global M&A,” the U.S. government may look for ways to encourage companies to invest in 5G and related areas as future CFIUS mitigations.

“It’s hard to force a company to innovate,” he said. “It’s particularly tricky because a company can argue that blocking a deal is preventing that company from innovating.”
