Washington, D.C., partner Nate Bolin was quoted in an Antitrust on Bloomberg Law article titled “Cross-Border Deals Seen as Unhindered by Proposed Filing Fees.” The article discusses proposed legislation that would expand the oversight of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CFIUS). The legislation would also allow the task force, which looks at foreign investment deals to assess national security threats, to charge filing fees for the first time.   The fees would support the work of the CFIUS committee and help to decrease delays, and would be allocated based on the size of the transaction.  Nate said that some companies might “initially see a fee as a negative,” but most would ultimately find it to be a positive development because the costs of a delayed review process are likely to “outweigh the cost of any fee.”
