+ 1 other expert

Foreign direct investment is an increasingly important topic in cross-border M&A. A broad range of sectors, transactions and parties now find themselves caught by new or expanded FDI screening regimes around the world. Various factors, including geopolitical tensions, security of supply concerns and the presence of state-funded investors, suggest that this trend is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

Against this backdrop, the Best Friends' Foreign Direct Investment Guide provides an overview of the regulations on foreign direct investment in several major European countries and at the supranational level in the European Union.

The guide is produced jointly by the Best Friends group of BonelliErede, Bredin Prat, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, Hengeler Mueller, Slaughter and May and Uría Menéndez. In addition to sharing a joint office in Brussels, we cooperate by working together at every opportunity on cases for clients, exchanging lawyers and pooling our know-how and expertise.
