  • Webinar description

The review of foreign investments has evolved significantly in Germany in recent years. Four major modifications of relevant laws and regulations in recent years have resulted in significantly more reporting requirements, overseen by a much more active regulator. The aim of this webinar is to explain to foreign investors and German suppliers what legal and practical hurdles and challenges they may face when investing in Germany.

In this webinar you have the opportunity
* to exchange views with the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) on the latest legal reforms,
* to analyse in more detail, through case studies, the potential difficulties and challenges of mandatory reporting and
* to better understand how to mitigate potential risks.
