The introduction of the new investment screening regime will mark a watershed moment for the UK Government’s powers to intervene in corporate transactions.
DLA Piper’s podcast series Understanding the UK National Security & Investment Regime guides listeners though what is driving the new regime, how it will operate in practice and its particular impact on those sectors most affected. It is essential listening for investors and businesses alike who need to understand how to navigate the requirements that will apply to transactions taking place from January 2022 onwards.
This episode of the podcast focuses on the impact on the public sector, including the “Critical Suppliers to Government” and “Suppliers to the Emergency Services” sectors.
Other episodes in the podcast series provide a legal overview of the regime and focus on a range of sectors including transport, tech and industrials. Listen to the series here and subscribe via iTunes, Spotify or your usual podcast platform.
