Foreign Investment Control and Antitrust LawTickets
Please note that this event – depending on the group of participants – will be held either in German or in English.
Foreign investment control and antitrust law do not matter for startups and investors? Quite the opposite. Our event offers you compact knowledge – in two short, crisp blocks.
In the first block, we will focus on financing and investments: A (non-EU) investor is planning to invest into your company and you are wondering what needs to be considered? We will explain what foreign investment and merger control actually stand for and how these areas of law can become relevant for startups and investors, e.g. during entry, financing rounds and sales of shares. This includes how the industry in which our company operates or the country of origin of investors can affect investment control reporting obligations, from which entry thresholds reporting obligations take effect and how a review can delay the closing. We also present the basics of merger control and what needs to be considered in the context of entry and exit.
The second block deals with antitrust basics and pitfalls for startups – and thus also for investors: We discuss the potential risks as well as the most important antitrust issues in the day-to-day business for founders, investors and employees: What are the basic rules that must always be followed? Which contractual clauses and/or agreements are problematic from an antitrust perspective? We also explain under which circumstances cooperations with other companies are permissible.
Our goal is to give you an overview of potential foreign investment control and antitrust risks, and how they can be dealt with. The event aims primarily at investors and startups that are already planning or conducting financing rounds.
