As we enter a third year of global pandemic and associated disruption, the need for business to access China’s supply chain, industrial base, consumer and capital markets has never been greater. US business and investors need to access Chinese consumer markets, industry and capital to survive.

As we look forward to 2022, the tension between the need to do business in China with the prevailing political pressure to decouple from the Chinese economy will come to a head, and new and highly restrictive regulation is expected in Washington.
Please join leading law firm Foley & Lardner LLP and Martin+Crumpton Group, a global business strategy and intelligence advisory firm, for a discussion of the current U.S.-China investment environment, including the growing risk factors associated with U.S. investment in Chinese companies.
The speakers will cover the practical steps that American businesses and investment firms can take to minimize exposure to legal and reputational risk. The speakers will do a deep dive into the evolving tools that businesses and investors can leverage should they decide to de-risk through divestment or sale.
