Jones Day Talks: Oversight of Foreign Direct Investment in the UK
The United Kingdom is taking a careful look at potential direct investments by foreign entities. While the UK certainly works hard to attract investor interest, concerns relating to certain sectors can trigger government scrutiny and oversight.
Jones Day lawyers Matt Evans and Chase Kaniecki discuss the U.K.'s review process, the role of the Competition and Markets Authority, the sectors subject to examination, and the importance of "managing the message."
