Husisian Quoted on Effect of CFIUS Investment Reciprocity on Chinese Deals

14 March 2017 Law360 News


Partner Gregory Husisian was quoted in a Law 360 article, “Reciprocity in CFIUS Reviews Might Hit Chinese Deals Hardest,” covering Trump’s standpoint on the sale of the Chicago Stock Exchange to a Chinese investment group, as it relates to reciprocity through the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS).

Husisian said that Trump viewed the sale as “problematic” and that it “is in his view taking advantage of the free trade rules.” He continued by explaining that Trump “is clearly skeptical of trade and investment from China, and China is really the largest source of CFIUS filings, and that’s a trend that’s not going to go away.”
