The introduction of the new investment screening regime will mark a watershed moment for the UK Government’s powers to intervene in corporate transactions.

DLA Piper’s new podcast series Understanding the UK National Security & Investment Regime guides listeners though what is driving the new regime, how it will operate in practice and its particular impact on those sectors most affected. It is essential listening for investors and businesses alike who need to  understand how to navigate the requirements that will apply to transactions taking place from January 2022 onwards.

This episode of the podcast focuses on the impact on the tech sector: which activities are likely to be caught, with a focus on AI and computer hardware.

Other episodes in this series, including episode 2 which provides a legal overview of the regime, can be found here.
