Doreen M. Edelman will be speaking on a panel, "Assessing FIRRMA’s Impact on Investment Deals Involving Private Equity Funds," during ACI’s 7th National Conference on CFIUS.

During this session, the panelists will discuss:

  • How are PE companies dealing with the new CFIUS reality post-FIRRMA?
  • Are we seeing a change in the way PE companies are structuring their funds, shaping their deal making practices or organizing their financing practices?
  • What trends are being seen with regard to the review of PE deals, process challenges, mitigation in the PE context, due diligence in the PE context, etc.?
  • Considerations for U.S. private equity funds who are evaluating whether their fund structures could cause them to be considered a foreign person for CFIUS purposes?
