The UK’s foreign investment landscape is heading for a complete overhaul. On 11 November 2020, the UK Government introduced a new law that significantly expands its powers to review transactions on national security grounds, in line with global trends of increasing regulatory scrutiny of incoming foreign investments.

Baker McKenzie has analysed the new law and regulatory impact for businesses in detail so that you don’t have to. Join our UK foreign investment experts Samantha Mobley, Sunny Mann and Tristan Grimmer on for an update on everything you need to know about the new rules, including:

  • Risks of not filing
  • Impact on transactions that complete before the new law comes into force
  • How the review process will work and timelines
