Against a backdrop of increasing global protectionism, foreign direct investment (FDI) regulation has become a critical piece of the regulatory jigsaw in recent years.

It also offers practical guidance for investors seeking to minimise deal risk and navigate the approval process as smoothly as possible.

It is authored by Veronica Roberts, Ruth Allen and Ali MacGregor.
