Amini Discusses CFIUS with the Financial TimesOctober 04, 2016
O’Melveny partner Nima Amini was quoted in the October 4, 2016, Financial Times article “Getting Past the US’s M&A Doorman.” The article explores the challenges the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States poses to in-bound transactions.
“CFIUS is like the bouncer at a club that is very popular,” Amini told the FT. “They don’t give you a reason why. They just say no, you can’t come in.”
A mergers and acquisitions specialist based in Hong Kong, Amini has over a decade of experience advising multinationals, financial institutions, and investment funds on complex cross-border transactions across Asia, Europe, and the US in a variety of industries, including Internet, technology, health care, media and entertainment, telecommunications, consumer retail, and education.
