Chinese Buyers in Europe: How to Clear Hurdles

FinanceAsia | March.15.2017

Orrick’s Betty Louie authored an article in the March/April issue of FinanceAsia that discussed the challenges Chinese investors face when conducting deals in Europe and how best to overcome them. One point Betty stresses in her article is an understanding of European laws. Betty notes: “When looking to invest in a project, it is often not just a case of competition law and foreign investment approvals, but also of internal market rules. For example, infrastructure may be governed by third-party access rules and sales by joint ventures can invoke merger rules or investigations into pricing. A failure to understand European regulations and norms at the outset is a common reason for the delay or even failure of deals.”
