Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States


Reviewing and securing clearance for transactions subject to scrutiny by CFIUS.


Ropes & Gray advises clients in connection with reviews by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) of potential acquisitions by foreign purchasers of U.S.-based assets or businesses that might have an impact on national security. As CFIUS has significantly expanded its views on the types of transactions that might impact U.S. national security interests, it has become increasingly important to have cross-functional counsel teams prepared to identify and address CFIUS concerns. We have extensive experience advising clients in industries that engage in the types of transactions most regularly reviewed by CFIUS such as technology, media and telecommunications transactions, among others.

Our cross-functional CFIUS team consists of partners from our mergers & acquisitions, international risk, and underwriting practices, who are prepared to advise clients and guide them through the process, step-by-step, in an effort to achieve business goals related to acquiring and investing in U.S.-based companies.
