The program addresses how to do business in Russia following recent events that have brought it to the brink of war and its relationship with the U.S. at its worst since World War II.  
This is the third in our “Negotiable Hostilities” series of webinars, whose theme is whether Russian and other foreign investment in U.S. wireless and technology markets is doable in the current hostile, geopolitical climate.   It will begin with a brief overview of the sanctions and other foreign policy implications of the current crisis – and how it might affect international contracts among parties in the U.S., Europe and Russia.
For practitioners involved in such transaction, the program will discuss U.S. foreign entry and other regulations expanding scrutiny of foreign investment in the U.S. telecommunications, wireless, and digital infrastructure.  The program will also briefly discuss how the Biden Administration’s approach to national security differs from that of the Trump Administration.  The discussion will lay out the regulatory roles of Team Telecom, CFIUS, Commerce Department (ICTS regulation) and expanded Federal Communications Commission (FCC) jurisdiction over foreign telecommunications licensing and ownership applications.  
And in light of recent hostilities in Eastern Europe, the program will provide practice pointers, including the impact of war and other “force majeure” events on cross-border financial and technology transfer contracts, how international arbitration will play into inevitable disputes, and what contractual and other deal protections should be considered in such turbulent times. 
These developments affect every attorney involved in transactions or regulatory compliance involving foreign telecommunications (and other communications infrastructure) investors – and especially those representing carriers, investors, suppliers and other involved with Russian and Eastern Europe.
