M&A Lawyer Quoted on Impact of Chinese Regulatory Rules on Global Transactions

Financial Times (U.K.) | April.17.2013

This article, about Chinese regulatory rulings on global transactions that impact China's natural resources, quotes M&A and private equity of counsel Veronica Lockyer.

Lockyer stated that Chinese regulators are particularly concerned about global deals in raw materials, energy and agricultural commodities – sectors Beijing considers key to national security.

“There are factors that the Ministry of Commerce has to consider that are not factors that would ordinarily be considered in an antitrust process, [such as industrial policy and resources security],” she added. ​
