Essential Foreign Investment #2: The road to tougher FDI screening?

In the second of our new quarterly series, partner Alastair Mordaunt is joined by UK partner Michele Davis, US CFIUS practitioner Christine Laciak and EU FDI practitioner Aude Guyon to discuss developments in foreign investment.

And what should businesses think about when it comes to the practical applications of all these different screening regulations?
