Welcome to Compliance Hot Spots. The federal panel that conducts national security reviews for foreign investments is widening its aperture and will soon review a broader swath of deals that touch critical U.S. technology. The new process—and workload for the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S.—could bring new delays even to deals that don’t raise concerns about the national security. Scroll down for the latest moves, compliance headlines and our regular feature Who Got the Work.

As always thanks for reading—and please do send feedback. I appreciate hearing from you about what’s on your plate—observations, trends, new clients. I’m at [email protected] and 202-828-0315, or follow me on Twitter @cryanbarber.
