US and non-US corporates, banks, private equity firms, institutional investors, law firms, strategic communications companies, and government agencies around the world seek BRG’s foreign investment transaction operation professionals to help design and execute cross-sectoral strategies to navigate and manage business opportunities and risks associated with the decision-making process of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS).

While CFIUS was once seen as largely a legal matter, this is no longer the case. Unlike some providers of CFIUS advice, BRG’s veteran interdisciplinary CFIUS team provides clients unsurpassed integrated strategic and operational pre- and post-transaction CFIUS services.

Our team includes practitioners who have participated in authoring key CFIUS-related legislation while serving on Capitol Hill, sat on CFIUS during their tenure in the White House, worked as private equity executives on investments affected by CFIUS decisions, and overseen global management business strategy consulting practices throughout emerging markets on matters related to inbound foreign direct investment to the US.

BRG’s CFIUS Team Provides:

  • Bespoke global strategic intelligence and investigation capabilities providing commercial and reputational due diligence and data analytics for robust decision-making regarding the parties and counterparties to transactions and their firms’ activities, including R&D, that are affected by CFIUS’ statutes and regulations.
  • Designing strategies for restructuring transactions and other remedial actions, including those related to antitrust, trade, and export control policies, that may be required for CFIUS clearance.
  • Independent monitoring to assure post-transaction compliance with CFIUS mitigation agreements.
  • Extensive sectoral expertise across numerous industry verticals, especially those currently specified by CFIUS as “pilot industries” under the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act of 2018 (FIRRMA).
  • In-house professionals located across the globe, including many with extensive on-the-ground experience working throughout key emerging markets.
  • Former senior US officials with firsthand experience with CFIUS operations as well as in the crafting of CFIUS’ statutory and regulatory requirements.
