CFIUS Presentation
October 02, 2018 8:30 am to 3:30 pm CST

Join Torres Law and Olga Torres at the 15th Annual InnoTech conference in Austin, Texas. Ms. Torres and Mr. Albert Schultz will present on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (“CFIUS”).

The CFIUS is an interagency body which has the authority to assess the national security implications of transactions that could result in control of U.S. businesses by foreign persons. With the increased focus on the acquisitions of U.S. companies, especially by China, CFIUS has entered the public consciousness in a way it never has before.

In their presentation, Ms. Torres and Mr. Schultz will discuss what CFIUS is, its background and recent history, its composition, and the processes associated with CFIUS. Also, the presentation will address CFIUS’s missions and goals.

Most importantly, the presentation will cover recent CFIUS cases and new legislation. The Trump administration has blocked more acquisitions of U.S. companies than any other presidency. This presentation will provide a brief overview of those cases, as well as the implications of these decisions.  The presentation will conclude with practical hints for companies and investors that may have to face the CFIUS process.

This event will be held in Austin, Texas at the Austin Convention Center. To register, please Click Here.
